Trams and trolleybuses are stopped indefinitely in Kyiv
From now on, ground electric transport - trams and trolleybuses - will not operate in Kyiv, according to the city's mayor, Vitali Klitschko
“Due to the shortage of electricity, we made a decision to stop the operation of ground electric transport in the capital - trams and trolleybuses. From now on, buses will run on all ground electric transport routes. In order to ensure the transportation of Kyivans on the routes where trams and trolleybuses run, we provided 222 buses. These are additional 38 bus routes to replace trolleybuses. And 17 - to replace trams,” Klitschko wrote.
In total, there are 440 buses operating on 126 city routes in Kyiv. This is the entire rolling stock of buses that is in the capital's fleets. Private carriers also provide transportation - 846 buses operate on 98 routes.
The metro in Kyiv will continue to operate. Now 50 stations out of 52 are open. Two stations - Hydropark and Dnipro - are temporarily closed.
