Jastarnia Wczasy - no trains?

Hi friends

I have just booked a pokoje goscinne on the Hel Peninsular and the owner says it is near to Jastarnia Wczasy railway station.

So I went to PKP timetable to find my train there from Gdansk on 14th September. For some reason, it gives a bus from Reda.

I cannot understand why, as there is a railway station.

Can anyone help me please?

rozklad-pkp.pl/bin/query.exe/en?ld=s26&OK#focus - Try this....

But make sure you type in the entire name or correct it when prompted.

Hi Shawn

As I said, I went to PKP timetable to find my train there from Gdansk on 14th September. For some reason, it gives a bus from Reda.

You just sent a link to that same timetable.

I want to go by train, I don't like buses.

Trains to Jastarnia are departing from Gdynia.

Nope. I just looked on the timetable and it's just the same -- From Gdynia it's BUS from Reda.

So I tried HEL to JASTARNIA and it told me it does not recognise HEL as a station.

So I tried Kuznica to Jastarnia and it told me to "Walk"!!!!

Is the whole line from Reda to Hel closed?

The routes change on September 1st, when schools go back. Try the tourist information center: gdansk4u.pl/en/gdansk-tourist-information-centre

Just checked, you're right the trains are running only till 2nd of September at which time they'll resume the work on the line, should be finished by January of 2014.

That is what I worked out, by looking at the train timetable, there are trains till 2nd Sept, then from mid October.

Thank you for confirming my suspicions. I understand a little bit of Polish, and sometimes that is dangerous, because I "think" I understand something when I don't!

I guess we will have to go by bus: -(

Not very keen on that!

I wonder if maybe the bus journey will be more or less pretty than the train journey.

What do you think?

Isn't there a ferry to Hel?

Oh no!

The idea of a ferry sounds wonderful!

But it seems there is no way to get onto the peninsula except by ..... bus!

From Gdansk airpot to Jastarnia its around 85-90 clicks, so speak yo the owner of the hotel they may be able to arrange a taxi for 200 Zlotys.. It will save a lot of messing around.

Hi Warszawski

We aren't travelling there from the airport. We are arriving late and will be staying at a guest house near the airport.

I wonder if you could help me please with another query?

The guest house is on Kartuska Street, near a bus stop. Where can I find out the times and destinations of the buses that pass Kartuska?

You can find the info here: ztm.gda.pl/rozklady/przystanek-201.html , or here: trojmiasto.jakdojade.pl/?locale=en ;
Kartuska bus stop is marked as 'n/ż' (na żądanie) which means it is not a regular bus stop, you will have to let the driver know that you want him to stop the bus there.

Thank you for that.

I am finding it very difficult to understand though!

For example, I looked at Route 142. It states "Trasa w obu kier.: Targ Sienny/Targ Rakowy - Nowe Ogrody - Kartuska - Nowolipie - Rakoczego - Potokowa - Słowackiego - Dmowskiego - Wrzeszcz PKP "

But on the list of stops underneath, there is no Kartusa! What does it all mean?

I looked at the map, Kartuska seems to be quite a long street, there are probably several bus stops along the way and only one of them gets its name after the street name. Bus line142 probably just doesn't stop at this specific bus stop.

Hi thank you so much Milawi, I understand now. I must find out the name of the stop!

It seems that bus stops Emaus, Zakopiańska and Urząd Miejski are at the Kartuska Street.

Thank you very much. I will ask the guest house which stop it is. Cheers Helena x

The bus stop on Kartuska is called

Fabryczna (Kokoszki)
