Public transport system in Gdynia
Gdynia’s public transport is separate from that in Gdansk, and consists of buses and trolleybuses. If you are not familiar with the latter, those are buses powered by the electrical network – just like trams. The public transport network in Gdynia is extensive, and some buses go far beyond the city borders. Tickets for trolleybuses and buses in Gdynia are the same but are different from those used in Gdansk (despite the same price). Tickets validated in Gdynia are also valid in Sopot – on the buses run by the city of Gdynia (blue buses), but you can’t change into Gdansk buses that go to Sopot (red buses).

Using Metropolitan tickets in Gdynia
You may also use Metropolitan Tickets, but remember that only 24h tickets (only 16/25 PLN) and 72-hour tickets (32/50PLN) are valid both on Gdansk and Gdynia buses.
Kamienna Hill cable car
Except for buses and trolleybuses, there is also a cable car that goes up from the Music Theatre and takes you to the Kamienna hill.
A free-of-charge gondola will take you up to the upper terrace of Kamienna Hill, from where there is a beautiful panorama of the sea and the city. The ride in the glass gondola takes about 2 minutes, during which the cable car covers a distance of 96 metres and ascends to a height of 40 metres from the base of the hill. It is operated by the passengers themselves, summoned and activated by a button.
The railway is open all year round, Saturday, Sunday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The ride is free of charge.
Getting from Gdansk to Gdynia

- cash desk at the station (remember to validate the ticket before you enter the train),
- ticket machine (if you plan to return on the same day, look for special offers)
- conductor at the first door of the train – remember to enter the train through the first door. Otherwise, the ticket inspector may fine you for not having a ticket. Buying a ticket from the conductor, you need to pay an extra fee (2,8 PLN)
- in the App (Skycash)
Gdansk is connected with Gdynia with a network of bike paths – the main being the one going along the beach. Riding a bike from Gdansk to Gdynia should take you about two hours. You may also use the Mevo bike, as Gdynia joined the Mevo System as well.
