FlixBus, Europe’s largest bus operator, opened new routes last week from Kyiv and Lviv to Ukraine’s biggest destinations for migrant workers and students – Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic

. The three routes, generally taking around 12 hours, include intermediary stops in each country. Separately, Michal Lehman, regional CEO of FlixBus, has complained about Ukrainian rules: “Due to the complicated process of obtaining permits for domestic transportation, a ticket from Kiev to Warsaw is more expensive than from Warsaw to Berlin, although, based on the distance, it should be the other way around.”
