Public transport in Irkutsk

If you have visited other Russian cities you have noted, that public transport is very popular. And we will tell you why – it’s extremely cheap and useful! For just 20 roubles you can go wherever you want, without any limits on distance or time. When you go somewhere by bus and you know your bus stop will be soon, you should stay closer to the front door – by this you will show to the driver you want to go out at the next bus stop. There are three doors in buses – the front door, the middle door and the back door. Usually, passengers get on the bus through the middle or the back door and leave it using the front door. If you go out through the middle or the back door, other passengers and driver could think you want to escape without paying…
