Traffic in Ukraine - right-hand (steering wheel on the left).
The total length of highways is 169,491 km.
The central routes are in rather good condition, while the mountain roads of Crimea and Carpathians are quite narrow and winding, and are often in not very good condition. It is particularly dangerous to travel on such roads in the rain. Often, quarry dump trucks (east of the country) or agricultural machinery with many hinged tools move along public roads, and herds of livestock are distilled. Increased attention should be paid in the area of numerous markets (including roadside markets), in old areas of cities and at intersections with secondary roads.
Most of the passenger traffic in cities is transported by buses and trolleybuses (Kyiv has a metro and tram). Simferopol and Yaltu connect the longest trolleybus track in Europe (travel time - 1 hour 30 minutes). Coaches of intercity and suburban traffic connect almost all settlements of the country.
Between the main resort areas and train stations there are route taxis (the cost of travel at different companies is different).
Taxis can be hired almost everywhere.
At night, the tariff doubles.
When travelling outside the city feature, the cost of travel should be agreed in advance.
International airports operate in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Lviv and Odessa.
Domestic air travel is well developed, but due to the comparative high cost and small distances until recently was not very popular.
The total length of the railways is 22473 km.
Rail transport is very well developed, although it has rather outdated rolling stock. The railway network covers almost the whole country, rising even to the Carpathians. The most frequent communication is carried out on the lines: Kyiv-Lviv-Uzhhorod, Kyiv-Odesa, Kyiv-Kharkoiv, Kyiv-Dnipro.
Tickets are realized in specialized agencies and at the station. Recently, a network of "improved passenger service" offices has been developed, where tickets for "deficit" directions can be purchased for a slightly higher fee without standing in queues and with a greater guarantee.
The length of river shipping lanes is 1672 km. The Dniper and Danube rivers are important routes for the transport of international cargo.
The main ports on the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov are Odesa, Chornomorsk, Iuzne, Kherson, Mykolaiv and Mariupol.
In the coastal zone, quite large passenger traffic is transported by sea vessels.
