Ukrainian refugees in Poland will still be able to ride trains for free until June 30, but from July 1 the rules change. Paid travel by RKR Intercity trains is being introduced in the country, and Ukrainians will have to buy tickets for the full price, writes economics.segodnya.ua.

Until June 30, citizens of Ukraine can travel by RKR Intercity trains to cities on the eastern border of Poland for free : Chelm, Dorohusk, Lublin, Grubeshov, Przemysl, Zaguzh, Yaroslav, Rzeszow.

Ukrainians can now get free tickets at the ticket offices of these cities or from the conductor on the train immediately before departure.

But you should already be prepared for the fact that in a few days Ukrainians will lose their right to free travel. As you know, from June 1, Poland introduced a paid fare for Ukrainian citizens in public transport for women, children under 18, as well as men over 60 years old and men with disabilities over 18 years old. This exception is valid until the end of June.

Vehicles registered in Ukraine from June 1 are required to pay tolls on toll roads in Poland. These changes do not apply to vehicles carrying humanitarian aid for Ukraine and citizens of Ukraine.
