Current Conditions of Tourist Travel on Ukrainian Trains

How has changed traveling by train, and what safety measures are being taken

Everyone knows that Covid-19 has made tremendous changes in people’s daily lives and travels. Many Ukrainian tourists actively use rail transport to travel around the country. But now the rules of travel have changed.

The new cross-regional travel rules require passengers to have a vaccination certificate. It is possible to present the supporting document both in paper form and by means of the Diia app.

The company is a Ukrainian electronic service provider of state services. The project was developed and launched in 2020 by the Ukraine Ministry of digital transformation.

Later, a function that displays information of a person who has suffered disease and has antibodies will be available in this application. The passenger will be able to use this form for interregional travel.

It is not possible to ignore the fact that, as in the first days, the Ukrainian national railway operator Ukrzaliznytsia takes all necessary measures to ensure the safety of passengers. All cars are handled by special means, and staff uses medical masks.

Taking into account the new requirements for travel between cities, one of the stations of Ukraine took care of those who did not take a vaccination and did not have time to take a test before the trip. Zaporizhzhia-1, a station in the south of Ukraine, opened a center for the unvaccinated. In the center, you can make a quick test and get in your car, starting a new adventure.
