     Arriving at Kyiv (Kiev) Boryspil Airport you will pass through customs and enter through some double doors into the main terminal.      Through the throngs of people you will be asked if you need help with your bags and if you need a Taxi….constantly. From our own experience with friends arriving at Boryspil the help with the bag will run you $20 USD to carry or wheel it across the street into the parking lot or to the curbside loading area, maybe a total of 20 or 30 yards. These people are “private” hustlers.

      The Taxi from Boryspil to Central Kyiv will run you about $38 to $45 USD. Just after you enter the main terminal, you'll see in front of you Information Booth and next to it - Taxi Boothes. Better get your taxi from them. Safer and Cheaper.

     For a budget travellers there is also a Shuttle Bus (big one, or a mini van, depends on the time of the day) that you can catch very easily right out the front terminal door off to the right. You can’t miss it. It runs approximately every 15-20 minutes during a day and 50 mins at night, so if it’s not there when you walk outside just wait a few minutes and you’ll see it pull up. It will have “Boryspil” , "Polit" or "Atass" written on the side. The bus services operate 24/7. You can take it with your bags for about 20 Hryvnia (approx. $4) to/from the first Metro Station "Kharkivs'ka" or for 25 Hryvnia (approx. $5) to Kiev's Southern Railway Station Terminal. It is a modern and comfortable ride. There are usually Taxis waiting at the Bus’ final stop you can take to your final destination for 6 - 10 dollars. Road time is approx. 50 mins

     Kiev Zhulyany Airport is located 8 km from the city center and 1,5 km from Kil'tseva Road. There's also a railway station, Kyiv-Volyns'ky, near the airport, which makes it an easy and convenient reach from most outlying areas.

     By City Transport: Airport - Railway Station (trolleybus #9)
                                   Airport - University Metro Stop (marshrutka or minibus #9)
                                   Airport - Shulyavs'ka Metro Stop, Obolon district (trolleybus #22, marshrutka or minibus #213)

     And, of course, hiring a Taxi would certainly be the easiest of all options. Just be sure the Taxi driver understands which airport . :^ ))
