Well played, sir. I was quite surprised to learn that a 100km regional route in Poland takes around 2.5h. What surprised us even more was the fact the train made all kinda of cracking noises as it shaked quite a bit which made it feel as if we were going 300km/h.

Is it the new branch of SKM Trojmiasto, or something completely different?

Yes and no. PKM is a part of Tricity network and is connected to SKM via Gdansk-Wrzeszcz station and it will be eventually connected on the other end in Gdynia.
It is sadly going to have own ticket system. So if you want to transfer from SKM to PKM you will need two different tickets which is in my opinion very stupid... but this is a part of bigger problem in Tricity. There is no network ticket for all means of public transportation in Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot. If you for example want to travel from Gdansk to Gdynia using bus (or tram) in Gdansk then SKM, then bus (or trolleybus) in Gdynia you need 3 different tickets!!!

that's too bad, ticket integration would make the system so much better and the lives of people in the Tri-City so much easier, not to mention how many more passengers this would attract.

Really?:

"24-hour and 72-hour metropolitan tickets (railway and public transport of all operators) are valid in all buses, trolleybuses and trams as well as SKM trains and trains of Przewozy Regionalne Regio (PR) within the area of the Metropolitan Public Transport Association of Gdansk Bay (MZKZG)."

"The Tourist card allows for free entrance to many museums and the zoo in Gdańsk and for discount in many restaurants, hotels and places of entertainment. The Tourist Max card allows for free travel by public transport within the area of MZKZG."

Yeah but there is no such a thing like one way-common ticket for buses.

If I go from Gdynia to Gdańsk by bus I need to buy two tickets (in Gdynia at one time 5 tickets from a driver).
24 and 72 hour tickets are more like for tourist than for locals.

Yes, you are right. What I meant was that this is a bit complex system especially for people from outside. Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot are practically one big city with around 800.000 citizens, so there should be one common ticket, no matter where you buy it, no matter where you use it...As a matter of fact Wejherowo, Rumia, Reda and Pruszcz Gdanski should be included too... which makes it close to 1 million - 3rd biggest metropolitan area in Poland.
