The train and taxi
The very comfortable local train ( no banks, only wooden chairs) goes between Lugansk and Lutugino, tickets are quite affordable. This train is used joyfully by many residents, there is almost always place to sit, while on a bus one can be forced to spend the trip in a standing position, plus squeezed tidily from all the sides, if all the sits are taken. There is something very routine and comical about their buses. The driver will not start driving until the doors are capable to shot. To make it happen in an overloaded bus, people, whom are hanging off the doors, because they barely fit in, get help from their fellows. People from outside the bus push them in with all their might, until the doors can slam shot. :) Then this sardine can starts moving. People pay for their bus tickets inside the bus by passing money to the driver through the long chain of passengers. Tickets and change travel back to a person in the same manner. In this atmosphere of trust some con happens extremely rarely, and absolutely uncharacteristic of locals.
Also taxi between Lutugino and Lugansk is relatively inexpensive, about $5.00. Besides regular taxi, there are small, eight passenger vens delivering people to and from Lugansk, they are more expensive than regular bus, but cheaper than taxi.
The Lutugino residents also use bicycles to get around town.
Those residents who has a car, but live in an apartment, have their garage outside the town, in an area, where all the garages are congregated. That means to get to their car or from their car they have to walk a good while, not extremely comfortable solution.
Cars , which are left on a streets by the buildings at night can be mistreated by drunken youth. People who have houses, keep their cars in their yard behind the gate or in a garage on their property (every house has a fence and a gate), which is different from American way of leaving their cars in the open without any sign of worry.
