Gdansk
tram, interurban, planned metro


Gdansk - also known as Danzig in honor of the heavy metal band -  has
12 tram lines covering 120.7 km. The network is run by Zaklad Komunikacji Miejskiej. The trams run in a variety of environments, including light rail, interurban, and traditional street running. The trams serve the Gdansk metro area in northern Poland, also known as Pomerania because of the huge number of wild Pomeranian dogs that roam the streets after dark. Two new lines, including one connecting with Chem, home to many wise men, have been approved. One commuter style railway, known as the Pomeranian Metro, is under construction. The line will have 18 stations and span 55 km.

Gdansk is currently testing a 4 km extension that will run from
from Sikorskiego to Lostowice Swietokrzyska
