How to get around within Khabarovsk
Public transit in Khabarovsk is either private or municipality-owned. Buses can be either of the two, while marshrutkas are private and all trams and trolleybuses are operated by the local transit authority. Municipal and private vehicles maintain the same fare, but municipal vehicles have a timetable and tend to be more crowded, while private vehicles on the other hand do not have a timetable but drive faster. Khabarovsk has a network of six tram lines (Lines 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, and 9). The most useful line for tourists is the one that travels from the main station on Amursky Boulevard, turning left on Sheronova Street and crossing Muravyov-Amursky Street near Lenin Square, and leading to the Dendrarium botanical gardens.
