The Ukrainian Railways joint-stock company (Ukrzaliznytsia) has clarified the information regarding the launch of a train between Ukraine and Romania. According to the company, the train route will soon be fully operational.

"The launch of a rail passenger service across the border between Ukraine and Romania is expected at the beginning of December," the company said in a statement.

A DPKr-3 regional train built in Ukraine will operate on the route.

"The net travel time from Rakhiv to the Romanian town of Valea Viseului is about 40 minutes, excluding customs procedures. Border and customs control will be conducted upon boarding the train," said Ukraine’s Minister of Infrastructure Oleksandr Kubrakov.

Ukrzaliznytsia plans to operate two services per day. Passengers will be able to transfer to trains operated by Romania’s CFR Railway.

Trains from Valea Viseului to the Sighet, Cluj, and Bucharest stations are available daily.
