The Ukrainian Railways public joint-stock company (Ukrzaliznytsia) has announced its decision to extend the Intercity+ high-speed train’s Kyiv-Lviv route to Przemysl (Poland). This will take place on 23 December this year.
Ukrainian Railways announced this during the presentation of a new timetable for long-distance passenger trains on Friday, on 9 December.
The approximate travel time will be seven hours.
As the CFTS portal reported, extension of the Intercity+ high-speed train’s Kyiv-Lviv route to Przemysl was recently proposed during a joint meeting of the Ukrainian parliament’s transport committee and the Polish parliament’s infrastructure commission.
To speed up the crossing of the Ukrainian-Polish border, it is proposed that border control procedures should be performed on the train while it is traveling between Lviv and the state border.
The head of the Ukrainian parliament’s transport committee, Yaroslav Dubnevych, has said that the cost of traveling between Lviv and Przemysl on an Intercity+ train should not exceed EUR 5.
