KHMELNYTSKYI | Public Transport

Well, let's speak about transport in city in Western Ukraine (also in Central Ukraine, 122 km from Vinnytsia and 348 km from the capital of Ukraine - Kyiv).
Unfortunately, there aren't undeground or trams in Khmelnytskyi. However, Khmelnytskyi isn't very big city. The area is 93,05 sqr.km (for example, Kyiv has 839 sqr.km). But there many MAN - busses here. Also there trolleybusses here (124 machines - this is quite more, for example Lviv hasn't so many trolleybusses). Here the newest trolleybusses (Made in Lviv, Electron). As you can see, Electron trolleys have wi-fi in cabin. There only 2 such trolleys in Khmelnytskyi because they new yet



Also we have such trolleys here(This is green Bohdan trolley)

Also we have urban rail (city electric train) Khmelnytskyi - Grechanu ( but Grechanu is the part of Khmelnytskyi and the small district in Khmelnytskyi)
These are trains in station Grechanu (in Khmelnytskyi)

This is Rail Bus on station Grechanu

This electric train run from Central rail station to Grechanu station ( not far from Central railway station)

And this is in Central Railway station

Also there is a small ship in Pivdenuy Buh river ( it swims in broad part of the river)

And it swims near small island (it calls Island of the love) to trade centre Oazis

in this ship you can celebrate something. You can also see big part of the city. But this ship doesn't swim through the all city, because the Pivdenuy Buh here is quite narrow river, but this river is quite wide there, where this ship swims

Also we want to see trams in Khmelnytskyi. But the most of streets are narrow here, so Khmelnytskyi must has high-speed trams (they run in own ways and don't stop the car trafic). Trams can run on roads with cars only in these streets: Trudova, Prybuzka, Vinnytske shose. Also Khmelnytskyi must has more Electrical trains Khmelnytskyi - Grechanu

There were plans for tram in the past. Back in 1899, one merchant, who witnessed tram opening in Zhytomyr (which still existed today), become advocate for tram in Proskuriv (Khmelnytskiy's old name untill 1954). But because city didn't have enough electricity to power tram system, project become abandoned shortly afterwards.

City was eventually recieved enough electricity in 1910 with construction of new power station, but even in this case tram project was not revived. However, in late 19th-early 20th century there was railcar which transported people between Grechany (village west from city, now in city borders) and Proskuriv and people called it 'tramway'

yes,it was. People really called it like 'tramway' (but it didn't a traditional tram).
Good electric trains' connection can do very much. Today you can go from Rakove to Grechanu in fixed-route taxi 2 (Sprinter busses and so on).
about Zhytomyr - it has only 1 tram route now. It buys trams from Vinnytsa sometimes. Zhytomyr also has 1000 mm rails

This is the plan of the future (high-speed)tram system in Khmelnytskyi


And this is the station "Rechovuy Runok" (near famous Khmelnytskyi market)


This is the station in Central part of the city. It is near Proskyrivska street


The station in Dalny Grechanu(small district). It is not far from railway station Grechanu


The station "Maydan Nezaleznosti" - one of the central station. It is near Maydan Nezaleznosti ( and also the house of power in Khmelnytskyi)


These are 2 stations in residential area. Thanks to this area(array) people want tram system


The station "Zaliznodorogniy Vokzal". Tram system must delivers people from this station to Khmelnytskyi market. The blue line is the pedestrian crossing.


P.S. all red points are the stations.

As we can see, this tram route connects Rakove small district (there aren't districts in Khmelnytskyi, only small districts) with Central part of the city and with small district Grechanu (with railway station Grechanu). By the way, station Grechanu is the biggest railway junction in Khmelnytskyi region ( Central railway junction in Khmelnytskyi in Proskyrivska street is smaller)

So unexpected. Not the poorest, but 1 of the poorest
But Khmelnytskyi is quite developed for Ukraine

This thread is called like a public transport, but i want also to speak about all transport(not only public). So today we will speak about bikeday in 2015 year. Many cities in Ukraine have a bikeday every year. In this year we had the bikeday on 31 May. There was about 500 people this day. The day was not so huge as in Kyiv, but there was interesting also



Well, we ran 8 km distance
The cars were very friendly - some honked to us.
2 Police Toyota Priuses convoyed us

Yes, they bought 2 Bogdan trolleys. Someone ask:"why they bought Bogdan after Electron? Why not Electron?" But I think, that Electron hasn't make so many trolleys, because there are only some Electron trolleys in all Ukraine:1 in Lviv, 2 in Khmelnytskyi and maybe something in Rivne. Unfortunately Kyiv hasn't this trolleys(but soon Kyiv will have some Electron trams). But Bogdan is also good, maybe not as Electron, but direct not bad
