From Monday, May 16, public transport will be allowed in Kharkiv , including trams, trolleybuses and buses.

Mayor Igor Terekhov  announced this in an evening video message.

In particular, it is planned to launch 4 tram routes and 8 trolleybus routes. In addition, the city council intends to restore power lines and traction substations and increase the number of routes over time.

According to Terekhov, 25 bus routes are also being launched in the city.

Developing these routes, we tried to make sure that Kharkiv residents could get where they need from anywhere in the city.

It is noted that transport will operate daily from 7 am to 7 pm. And at least in the first 2 weeks, public transport will be free.

As for the  subway in Kharkiv, it will be launched only after the end of hostilities. At the same time, it is noted that after the war, one and a half to two months will be spent only on preparing for the launch of the metro, and the Saltovskaya branch will go much later than the other two.
