    I also got to Donetsk from Boryspil International Airport in Kiev by Yak-42 plane and enjoyed the flight very much!
    The planes depart from Terminal A in Boryspil.
    The plane was full (more than 70 seats).
    The prices vary from $100 to 200 and the flight time is one hour and twenty minutes.

    The Road to Donets'k

    by Roadquill Written Dec 10, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    OMG!! To drive from Kiev to Donetsk is over 700km. We had a game to EURO 2012 game to watch in Donetsk. We looked at the alternatives, flying, taking a train....nothing seemed to make sense other than hiring a car (van) and a sane driver and over hill and under dale we drove for nine or so hours. The flying schedules would put us either late the night before or too late to make the game in time if we left the day of. There now appears to be a low cost carrier, but this option did not show up during the Euros. The trains are all overnight. There were supposed to be high speed trains for the soccer tournament, but I guess that didn't happen. Who wants to spend all night in a train going to Donetsk? So driving it was....and kind of crazy at that, much of it on one lane one way, and one lane the other....making passing always an adventure. Most of the time we were driving by wheat fields, or sunflower fields. We stopped to eat at an interesting place in the middle of nowhere.

    Trolley-Buses for You

    by hunterV Updated Aug 21, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Trolley-buses are a very popular means of transportation in Donetsk.
    There are 14 trolley-bus routes, among them Route 2 is the most popular (with me, at least).
    Trolley-bus routes are as follows:
    2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, and 21.
    Trolley-bus 10 is the longest route in the city. It is 20 miles long. It connects Gorky Coal-mining Administration and October Coal-mining Administration.
    The first trolley-buses in Donetsk appeared in the main street on December 31, 1939 and connected the university campus and the metallurgical factory. The first route was only two miles long.

  • Airport transport

    by socheid Updated Aug 13, 2011

    This is from the Donetsk Airport website

    http://www.airport.dn.ua/en/office.php

    It doesn't make much sense to me. The guy in the hotel says to me that the way to get to the airport by public transport is to take the bus from Universitetskaya to Putilovskiy bus station (30 - 35 min journey) and then take connecting transport from there (5 - 10 min journey)

    By Train or By Bus

    by hunterV Written Oct 12, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a direct train and a bus from Kiev to Donetsk arriving there in about 10 hours.
    Taxis are everywhere in the city, the fare is reasonable!
    We hired a taxi by hour and it was $10 an hour within city limits.

    Canned People in Local Buses

    by Chlensky Written Dec 11, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Those people, who came to Eastern Europe for the first time will be very frightened with the way of transportation around the city. The main thing is that the city is rather big and here lives nearly 1,5 millon of inhabitants, but it has too narrow streets and the buses are not just full of people - actually if you want to get anywhere by bus is a good way to try to feel yourself as a canned fish. Local authorities usually don't even want to know what the people really need. At the same time, taxi is rather cheap, and you can get anywhere using it.

    A Tram Ride

    by hunterV Updated Feb 18, 2011

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A tram ride on a weekday after the rush hour would be a good idea.
    Take Tram #2 from/to the railway station and enjoy the city sites from it.

    Streetcar #2 to the railway station Trams are great here!) Ilyich Street leading to the Calmius embankment A view from Liberators' Memorial
