Abstract

Since 1990 a very rapid increase in Polish international coach services has taken place. Balancing of the official and black market U.S. dollar exchange rate and changes in accounting systems between countries of the former Eastern Bloc caused an unparalleled rise in plane and rail ticket prices. The supply of cheap international transport started to be insufficient. This situation was taken advantage of by the newly opened, mainly private bus companies. The result was that by August 1993 Poland already had 325 regular international coach services providing regular transport to 25 European countries.
