Buses / Cars Transportation

Ukrainian National Bus Lines serve almost every city and town in Ukraine. The older fleet of buses would suffice for short trips, although sometimes are overcrowded and dirty. So, for the price, train travel is a more comfortable option. "Deluxe" Bus travel is, however, available also by private companies and is not a bad choice.

There are regular bus schedules to the Polish cities of Warsaw, Krakow, Lublin, etc., with the ticket for the Warsaw route cheaper than by train. It is an overnight trip however and as you can imagine a bit of an uncomfortable sleeping experience.

From Kyiv the Polish bus departs from the Dachna Bus Terminal, Peremohy Prospect 142.

If you have no problem driving in, say, Bangladesh, Mexico City, or Moscow, you "might" qualify to drive in Kyiv! (It is much better to drive in other Ukrainian cities, but the roads leave much to be desired!) All you'll need is your International Driving Permit, Proof of Insurance, and Nerves of Steel. :^ ) Otherwise, its better to use a local Ukrainian driver with his own car. Cars with Drivers are affordable. If you must, you can rent a car at major hotels in Kiev and through car rental agencies in all major cities in Ukraine. Be sure and get acquainted with current rules of the "Road Police" and traffic signs written in Russian and Ukrainian "Cyrillic" lettering if you decide to drive.
