War in Ukraine: Deutsche Bahn wants to help Ukrainian refugees


The EU expects millions of refugees from Ukraine. Deutsche Bahn wants these people to travel free of charge from Poland to Germany – instead of a ticket, a Ukrainian passport is enough.

Deutsche Bahn wants to help refugees from Ukraine unbureaucratically - and make it easier for them to travel to Germany.

Refugees with a Ukrainian passport or identity card should be “free to use all long-distance trains from Poland towards Germany to Berlin,” the company said on Sunday.

The regulation applies immediately.

"This is intended to make it easier for refugees to continue their journey from the border."

The railway is in close contact with authorities and partner railways in Poland, the Czech Republic and Austria.

According to the information, up to six long-distance trains from Poland to Germany run regularly every day, all via the Frankfurt/Oder border crossing.

Long-distance trains come from Warsaw, Gdańsk, Przemysl on the Ukrainian border, Kraków, Vienna and Wroclaw.
