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 metro.
Metro fare is 50 kopecks, changing lanes 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, given the prices, you can't possibly want to pay with a hundred UAH bill.
Kiev metro operates from 6 am till 12 pm, the fare is 50 kopecks. Tickets can be purchased at the stations and are valid for changing lanes.
