Many regular bus routes in Western Ukraine (both direct or transit) run to Lviv from virtually every city, town or village.
A number of regular bus routes run from the largest cities of the European Union to Lviv. It is easier to get to Lviv from Ukraine’s neighbouring countries. For instance, you can rtake a bus to Lviv from such Polish cities of as Warsaw, Krakow, Lodz, Katowice, Rzeszow, Lublin, Tomaszow Lubelski, and Przemysl.
Here you can book bus tickets online.
There are also customs checkpoints on the western border of Ukraine (for instance, Korczowa-Shehyny on the border with Poland). You can get to the customs checkpoint by bus, and after you have cleared the customs and entered Ukraine you can use the buses running to the nearest cities including Lviv.
As a rule, regular international buses stop at the Central Bus Station in Lviv (AS-1 in Stryiska Street). However, there are some exceptions – several routes are located at the square in front of the Central Train Station (1, Dvirtseva Sq.) or behind the Opera Theatre (24, Svobody Avenue). We recommend inquiring about this information when purchasing tickets or obtaining it directly from the driver.
