Ukrainian citizens will be able to travel by train in Lithuania free of charge.
In response to the ongoing Russian war against Ukraine and in order to help people fleeing the horrors of the war, the companies of the Lithuanian Railways (“Lietuvos geležinkeliai” – LTG) group are starting to provide assistance. The passenger transportation company LTG Link from March 1 offered Ukrainian citizens free transportation on local routes in Lithuania. Ukrainian citizens wishing to use the free transportation will only need to present the Ukrainian passport or identity card, children – the birth certificate.
In order to provide the fastest possible solution and to make it as easy as possible to travel by train, free one-time tickets will be issued in trains or at ticket offices.
Under this initiative, Ukrainian citizens will also be able to transport their pets, including larger animals that do not fit in special containers, as well as hand luggage free of charge.
The company invites people to share this information both with people traveling to the Lithuanian-Polish border to help the people of Ukraine reach Lithuania and with Ukrainian citizens who are currently looking for solutions on how to reach the territories in Lithuania safely.
