Means of transport

     Zaporizhzhia is an important transport hub in the south of Ukraine.  The city transport infrastructure includes external routes, an internal transport network, and a public passenger transport network.

      In our city, public transportation is very good.  Buses provide the main source of public transportation. In addition to buses there are trams and trolley buses.

      You can use a public tarnsport because it is cheaper than travelling by car or taxi.

Zaporizhzhian buses

         Buses in Zaporizhzhia  are considered to be the most convenient type of public transport. Generally, they are big and therefore can admit more people than smaller marshrutkas.

Most of the old buses have been recently replaced with modern ones, which means they have an automatic bus announcement system and special areas for disabled people.  


Zaporizhzhian Marshrutkas

They are basically small buses. Because they are smaller than regular buses and because they tend to circulate on specific routes, marshrutkas can be regarded as route/share taxis.



Zaporizhzhian Trolleybus

Trolleybuses are more often used  by  retired people, mainly because of the functioning benefit system on electric types of transport. Having entered a trolleybus, you have to pay money directly to a driver, take a ticket and validate it through one of the ticket punches available in a trolleybus cabin.



Zaporizhzhian Trams 

      Trams in Zaporizhzhia  have the same system as trolleybuses but they are more often used by people because of more convenient routes available.
