Train Cost and Bus Schedule from Lodz to Czestochowa

I would like to where can I find the bus schedule of public transport between Lodz to Czestochowa? And how much does a return ride cost?

I notice that there are a few train connections between the two cities on PKP Railway website, however, I cannot buy the ticket online. I would like to know how much does the ticket cost?

Thank you very much.

Thanks. I think train from Lodz Kaliska to Czestochowa would be the best option in the evening, however, I notice the above website does not show the price of trains.

I search the pkp website, and I can only find a partial fare from Koluszki to Czestochowa (34zl), does anyone know how to find out the total price from Lodz to Czestochowa?

Moreover, Is ticket cheaper if I buy them online rather than at the train station on the day.

Thank you very much.

Have you tried pkp site

http://rozklad-pkp.pl/bin/query.exe/en?

I have just entered the route you need and (when you click the "buy ticket" button and continue) got the prices:

TLK train (operated by Intercity company (IC) http://www.intercity.pl/en/ ) 42PLN,

Regio train (operated by Przewozy Regionalne (PR) http://przewozyregionalne.pl/ ) 25,5PLN

However when your connection needs a change then it is more complicated. You can look in details for connection and then get if buy-ticket button is not visible in detailed view, split searching for two independent journeys.

Basically there are no price reduction if you buy online but there can be if you buy earlier. (i.e. 10-15% for the TLK trains). You can try to search for special offers using the links to the operator sites I have given above.

I notice that there is a return leaving Czestochowa back to Lodz Kaliska at 19:45 on 8.6, and costs around 19zl, is it possible to book the ticket in advance? Thanks

It looks to be bus connection. I can see it on http://en.e-podroznik.pl/

but I can see the price of 32zł not 19. On e-podroznik site there is "buy ticket" button so I believe you can buy it in advance this way.

There is another connection at 17:20 which costs 19,7 zł but this one takes 3:25hours instead of 2:10 for 19:45 bus. And for the 17:20 I cannot see the option to buy on-line. (These two are operated by different carriers.)

It is hard for me to judge I have not used them. Anyway, I believe you can wait till you are in Łódź to buy the ticket at bus station. Operator of that bus is PKS Łódź so I guess they sell tickets in Łódź.
