Summary/Abstract: The main goal of the article is to diagnose the accessibility of municipalities by bus transport in Poland calculated using the potential model. The analysis was carried out taking into account the possibility of transfers. It has become possible to compare bus accessibility with the accessibility by individual transport for both short and long trips, which allowed to identify areas (municipalities), where there is a particularly unfavorable situation in terms of accessibility by bus in relation to individual transport. For bus transport the “center of gravity” of accessibility is shifting towards south-eastern Poland. Bipolar and hexagonal system of higher accessibility visible in individual transport is losing importance for a system that more clearly emphasizes the role of Lublin and Rzeszow and the interconnectedness of central and south-eastern Poland.
