When I first came to Switzerland, I was impressed by its public transport system. Almost each village and town has a railway station and the railway tracks are literally everywhere. Trains depart at least twice an hour during the daytime even from the smaller stations. Villages which do not have railway stations have bus stops from where yellow “PostAutos,” public buses operated by the Swiss post, depart (in most cases once an hour) and bring passengers to the nearest towns or cities. Swiss public transport system is an object of the national pride for Swiss people and is often referred to as “one of the most efficient public transport systems in the world.”
Ukrainian public transport system.
Ukraine inherited its transport system from the Soviet Union. The first routes of the Ukrainians railway track were built in 1861 (Lviv-Peremyshl) and 1865 (Odesa-Balta). Today, the length of the Ukrainian railway track is 22,300 kilometers, 44.3 percent of which is electrified.
