That’s because she has to get up at 4 a.m. to make it to her morning shift five times a week. More than 405,000 Kyiv residents use the tram every day, according to the Kyivpastrans press service, a municipal transport company.

Semennikova drives a speed tram from Starovokzalna Street to Kiltseva Doroga at the edge of the city, along route number 3.

To drive that route, the driver has to be of the highest rank, and that’s what Semennikova is. Just three out of Kyiv’s 20 tram routes have speed trams, and they are relatively new to the city. Speed trams came about in 1978, while the first electric trams have been running the streets since 1892.
