Summary/Abstract: Education for sustainable development ought, inter alia, to shape and strengthen the ability to make judgments and decisions in favor of safer, healthier and more prosperous world, and should develop critical thinking and develop ecological awareness. In this context the aspect of environmental awareness and the related choice of means of transport can be discussed. This article presents the results of research regarding the choice of means of communication by students. The study was carried out by a questionnaire among students in Krakow. The results of the research are presented in context of available communication possibilities in Krakow, which are also characterized. Studies have shown that the level of environmental awareness of students is still not satisfactory. Behind their declared concern for the environment do not follow the attitudes and behavior supporting this concern. The most important is their own comfort, even more important than their own health and condition. The care for the environment recedes into the background.
