Urban transport in Tricity

A
A

Tricity's urban transport can be divided into three main transport organisers:

1. Public Transport Authority of Gdańsk (ZTM Gdańsk)
2. Public Transport Authority of Gdynia (ZKM Gdynia)
3. TriCity Rapid Urban Railway (SKM Trójmiasto)


Each of them operates on separate principles, operates independently of each other and has their own tickets which are not accepted in other companies (except for metropolitan tickets).

Travelling between cities


When travelling between cities, it is best to choose the SKM Tricity trains. The trains stop in such cities as: Gdańsk, Sopot, Gdynia, Rumia, Reda, Wejherowo, Kartuzy, Kościerzyna, Żukowo.

Ticket prices depend on the distance between stations. Tickets can be purchased at most stations in ticket counters or ticket vending machines. Important: Tickets purchased at the ticket counter should be validated in the ticket validator located on the platform, while tickets purchased in the ticket machine are valid for the nearest train in the indicated relation without the need to be validated again.
