Public transport in Gdansk is a convenient way to explore the city. The fares are acceptable, and if there are no traffic jams caused by some roadworks, accidents or extreme weather, it’s pretty punctual. All the buses and most of the trams are modern, with air-conditioning in summer and heating in winter.
Mevo – public bike system in Gdansk was launched in March 2019 and is still supposed to develop. So far there are only 30% of the bikes available and the system is suffering from initial setbacks, but once put in its full operating capacity, it is going to be a great complement to the public transport in Gdansk.
Hitchhiking from Gdansk to another Polish city shouldn’t be difficult. In Poland hitchhiking works pretty well and fast. It’s a popular form of travelling among young people. Lately highways were built so it’s not so simple like 10 years ago but still, comparing to other European countries, it is easy to hitchhike from Gdansk.
Gdansk Airport (Lech Walesa Airport) is easy accessible from city centre, as well as from Sopot and Gdynia. Getting to and from Gdansk Airport is easy and cheap both ways – you can get to all those places very easy and quite cheap if you decide to use public transport.
So far there is no municipal bike system in Gdansk. It is supposed to launch in late 2018. It’ll cover the whole Tricity and surroundings, but until now there is no information about the rules and prices. Gdansk has a wide network of bike paths, so Mevo can be a great success.
