Traveling by Kharkiv Subway, you will hear the announcements in Ukrainian. The names of the stations on the scheme of the subway were also transliterated into English for you to read the Ukrainian names of the stations. I thought it would be useful for you to have the translation of all

those station names in English, and made this translation for you, fellow travellers.

Around the City by Bus/Tram

City buses are fast and reliable

City buses are fast and reliable


Around the city by bus: As of today, there are about 150 bus routes in Kharkiv. The city bus traffic is serviced by 1,200 buses on a daily basis. Those buses belong to 68 bus transportation companies, the majority of which are private ones.

Most of the bus routes are linked to this or that subway station. We call those buses marshroutka or micro autobus. They are also called green buses since the majority of them are green. The bus fare is usually UAH 5-7. The minibus transport passengers and baggage on the specified routes. Passengers have an advantage: they can board and disembark in any location that is not prohibited by traffic rules. Under this mode of operation of buses and minibuses, the fare is high and travel benefits (those of pensioners and veterans) do not apply.

Exploring Kharkiv by Tram: There are thirteen tram routes in Kharkiv, among them eight are regular ones: 1, 7, 8, 12, 20, 23, 26 and 27. Route No.26 (Leo Tolstoy Square – Forest Park) is 25 km long (43 stops). We used Tram 23 during our stay in Kharkiv. The tram fare is UAH 2.5.
