Public city transport operates from 6 am to 1 am.
Trams and trolley buses tend to be crammed tight
with people but are a cheap way of traveling around
Odessa (Only 50 kopeck in the city). Often you have
tickets from the conductor. Insist on a ticket,

ticket and pockets the money. If you are caught
without a ticket, you will be fined around 10-20
