Getting from Gdansk airport to city centre

By bus

There is a direct bus from Gdansk airport to the city centre. It arrives in front of the main railway station in Gdansk, as well as next to Brama Wyzynna – very close to Dluga Street.

The number of the line is 210 – it leaves the airport at least once an hour on weekdays, and once an hour on Saturdays, Sundays and public holiday. The journey lasts about 30 minutes if there is no traffic, but expect it to be longer in the morning and afternoon. One ride ticket (3,20 PLN) is enough, but if you plan to use public transport on that day, consider buying a 24hour ticket (13 PLN) or buying Gdansk Tourist Card that includes transportation. You can buy the ticket from the driver, automatic ticket machine or using the Android App.

It’s also very easy to get from Gdansk airport to Sopot – bus 122 leaves the airport once an hour.

By Train

Direct trains from the airport to Gdansk City Centre are less frequent than the bus. However, if you are willing to accept one change in Gdansk Wrzeszcz, this is the most convenient way to get to the city centre. It’s more expensive (6,5 PLN), but not dependant on the traffic. If you get on the direct train (those will head to Gdansk Glowny), the journey will take you about 30 minutes.  If you need to change in Gdansk Wrzeszcz (usually you need to change platform), the whole journey will last no more than 45 minutes.

The ticket for the train may be obtained in the automatic ticket machine.

By Taxi

Personally, I wouldn’t take a taxi from the airport, as the price is much higher than public transport. But if your plane lands at night, this might be the only available option. The airport recommends Neptun corporation – the risk you’ll be ripped off is lower, but still, expect to pay 50-100 (depending on the time and day) PLN for a ride to Gdansk or Sopot. MyTaxi or Uber let you control your cost and estimate it before you reserve a taxi. Avoid non-corporate taxi, and always check the price list – it should be placed in the taxi’s door.

Bus 210 leaves from Brama Wyzynna bus stop, and then stops opposite to the main railway station. Ticket for one ride (enough to get to the airport) costs 3,2 PLN

By train

Rare trains leave from the main railway station (Gdansk Glowny). Anyway, you can go to Gdansk Wrzeszcz and then change into PKM train that passes the airport. Be aware, that you never know from which platform in Gdansk Wrzeszcz the train to the airport leaves, and the information there is hardly visible. Just make sure you don’t go to Gdynia Glowna via Sopot. The whole journey should cost 6,5 PLN.

By Taxi

You can take a cab from anywhere in the city, just make sure they do not fool you by taking a long way. Depending on the date and time, you should pay 50-100PLN. Uber – though not considered to be a 100% legal company in Poland  – works fine and should take you to the Airport cheaper.
