Tram

Tram in Lviv was the first public transport. At the end of 19th century, it was open the first track of equestrian tram, and just after 14 years – electric tram.

трамваї львів

Of course, since that time, the city has changed to unrecognizability, and transport routes intertwined in the most unexpected ways. However, the tram is still a favourite way of moving for Lviv citizens. The leaders of the city say that in the future plan to make the tram as a priority transport.

The Fare – 5 UAH (total), 2,50 UAH (preferential). You can buy a ticket from the driver, at the stops of electro transport or pay for a trip via Privat 24 or via SMS message. By the way, tickets online has its advantages: you can buy “hourly” ticket, which involves changing a number of tram (its cost – 5, 50 UAH).
