Thanks to visa-free travel with the EU, train passenger traffic between Ukraine and the EU has grown 13-fold in two years.

Thanks to visa-free travel with the EU, train passenger traffic between Ukraine and the EU has grown 13-fold in two years. In 2016, before visa-free travel to the EU, Ukrzaliznytsia carried 62,000 passengers between Ukraine and the EU. In 2018, the first full year of visa-free travel, the state railroad carried 821,000 passengers. Today, 16 trains ply the EU market, traveling to eight EU nations — Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Austria, Romania, Poland, Slovakia, Bulgaria. Shortly, UZ plans to add dedicated trains to two more national capitals: Kyiv-Berlin and Mukachevo—Prague.
