At the end of last year, just before winter holidays season, Kyiv city administration launched a number of night public transport routes. This novelty became a welcome addition to the public transport system of Ukrainian capital, enabling locals and tourists to reach their destination any time of the day.
4 night public transport routes are currently operating in Kyiv. 3 trolleybus routes include #91H (Central Railway Station - Myloslavska street), #92H (Southern Railway Station - Svobody street), #93H (Lva Tolstoho subway station - Chornobyl’ska street) and 1 bus route #137 (Central Railway Station - Kharkivska subway station).

All routes are currently operating in a test mode. Kyiv city administration would like to receive a feedback on the night public transport routes from Kyiv dwellers and public transport operating companies to make further improvements. It is also planned to add another route connecting Maydan Nezalezhnosti, Pivnichna street and Obolon’ area in the nearest future. However the ticket price for this route will be higher, at least UAH 10.
