Transport Around Kiev

Ukraine Connections will happily advise you on the best ways to get around Kiev and Ukraine whether you are on business or on holiday.

Kiev City Transport

There are three metro lanes in Kiev, trams, buses, trolleybuses and our favourite minibuses - marshrutkas. Traffic gets bad between 16.00 - 19.00 on workdays so it's better to use the metro.

Metro fare is 50 kopecks, changing lines is free. There are prepaid monthly cards available for either just one kind of transport (e.g. metro) or for all kinds (metro+bus+tram+trolleybus).
The yellow minibuses racing all over Kiev are called Marshrutkas (Marshutnie taxi). They can be stopped pretty much anywhere and they have a good network covering all areas of the city. The fare is between 75 kopecks to 2 UAH.
Trams, buses and trolleybuses work just like everywhere else. It is good to always have some small change and notes as well, given the prices, you can't possibly want to pay with a hundred UAH bill. Public transport in Ukraine operates from 6 a.m till 1 a.m.


Driving Around Kiev With Us

We have very modern cars and will very happily transport you around Kiev and it's surrounding areas whether your are visiting Kiev on business or on holiday. Our drivers are very friendly and have a very good knowledge of the city, its history and what this lovely city has to offer with regards to visiting the famous historical places of interest, places of leisure and entertainment and popular restaurants. You will find our prices to be very competitive.



Taxis

In Kiev you don't need to rely only on official taxis. Just stretch your hand out at any car as lots of drivers will give you a ride if it's on their way.
Most taxis don't use taxameter and they will try to rip you off especially at night, in the city center and of course because you're a foreigner.
If you need a decent car and a receipt, call Autosvit. They use the meter, give you a receipt and send new vehicles.  Order in advance, it often happens that they say they don't have a car available in your area if you call at the last moment.
Prices differ, in the city center pay from 10 to 15 UAH for a ride, 20 UAH at night. For longer journeys call a cab, they're cheaper.
To get to Borispol Airport expect to pay from 70 to 100 UAH

Metro

The Kiev Metro is a typical ex-Soviet three line system (total length 54.8 km ~ 37 mi) with all lines meeting in the city center (Maidan Nezalezhnosti or Freedom Square) forming a triangle. Older stations in the city center were built in the underground palace style similar to Moscow's metro. The network is almost entirely underground although the river Dniper is crossed twice on a bridge.

 

The Kiev Metro runs from 06:00 until 24:00.  First trains leave at 05:50 from the terminus of the line, and last trains leave the city center at 00:20.  It's convenient, fast, inexpensive and reliable and has some of the deepest underground stations in the world.  No trip to Kiev is complete without a ride on the Kiev Metro
