Best way to go from Gydnia’s port to the train station?

I’ve been trying to find the answers here but the posts are from few years ago, where it mentioned some street repairs, so I thought on asking to get recent info….

I’m traveling on a cruise next year with a stop in Gydnia and we are planning on taking the SKM train to Gdansk.

What’s the best way to go from the port to Gydnia’s train station? I read about a bus that goes from the port and you can buy tickets from the driver but you need Polish currency. Is there any ATM machines at the port?

I heard from someone that walked from the port, is it a safe and easy walk to the train station?

How much should a taxi charge to the train station?, do they take credit cards?

Is there any website in English with info about the train/local bus?

Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Thanks

Des

Do you possibly know where exactly will your ship stop? Cause the port is not that small; I am not 100% sure where cruise ships usually stop. It might be just a kilometre away, but might as well be 5 km.

Hi,

Walk fm the port to the centre of Gdynia is safety but you have to be careful as usually.

Last summer no ATM machine at the port.

I paid for taxi fm the main railway station to the port abt 20,25 Zlotys last summer.

Hi,

Something wrong with writing.

I am usually walking abt 20 - 30 minutes fm the French quay to the main railway station.

Taxi costs depends on firm.

thanks a lot Malgorzata!

Few more questions if you dont mind:

Do you know if taxis take credit cards or do we have to pay cash?

Can we negociate the price before getting in?

Do they speak English?

Thanks in advance!

HI,

Some taxi firm accept credit cards but not always (sometimes it depends on the cost level).

You can negotiate the costs but sometimes its better to follow ccounter indication.

You can ask the driver abt the level and to estimate if you can accept it.

I negotiate the price if I know the costs level.

Always ask if you have to pay for the return way. Some taxi firms in Gdansk or Gdynia or Sopot calculate also this and look from time to time to counter.

it should be switch on when you start.

Look also for tariff no. During the day (Mon - to Friday tariff 1 is obligatory in whole Tricity. When you are leaving Tricity or Gdansk or Sopot or Gdynia area during a day (till 10 p.m.) tariff no. 2 is obligatory.

During the night tariff no. 2 or 3 or 4 is used.

Many of drivers speak English but it is not a rule.

Many of them know some necessary words only.

Have a nice stay.

Kind regards
