Ukrainian Railways ready to launch new passenger train routes to EU

Ukrainian Railways ready to launch new passenger train routes to EUUkrzaliznytsia is ready to increase passenger traffic with the countries of the European Union, Ukrzaliznytsia Head Wojciech Balczun believes.

"Ukrzaliznytsia welcomes visa-free passengers! The company is ready for the opportunities opening up to Ukraine. We've started this work long before this historic day. Several figures: for the four months in 2017 the company transported 48,400 passengers to EU countries. This is twice as many as in the whole year of 2015 (23,800), or 6 times more than during the same period last year (over the four months of 2016 some 8,600)," he wrote on his Facebook page.

"Today Ukrzaliznytsia unites Kyiv with the five capitals of our western neighbors: Prague, Bratislava, Budapest, Warsaw, and Bucharest. The Kovel-Chelm train has been launched, and starting from June 15 we will launch the Lviv-Varna train, which will also pass through Ivano-Frankivsk and Chernivtsi. This should make the trips of our citizens to the beaches of sunny Bulgaria more convenient," he said.

In addition, the second pair of Hyundai Rotem trains on the Kyiv-Przemysl route will be launched soon. The train will pass through Vinnytsia, Khmelnytsky and Ternopil.
"Now we are working to launch direct Kyiv-Vienna trains from December this year," he added.
