== Hitchhiking out ==
If heading towards [[Poland]], choose carefully which of the several border crossings you want to take. If you are just crossing Poland and heading for Waiting times tend to be long at all crossings. The [[GermanyMedyka-Shehyni border crossing]] or further West, you should definitely take is the only one open to pedestrians.
=== Northwest towards [[Rava-Ruska]], [[Zamość]] (PL), [[Lublin]] (PL) {{E|372}} M09 ===
This direction leads to the [[Hrebenne-Rava Ruska border crossing]].
=== West towards [[KrakovetsPrzemyśl]], [[Rzeszów]], [[Kraków]], [[Germany]] === If you want to hitch towards Rzeszów and anywhere far away (even towards [[Warsaw]] consider the route via Rzeszów) you should stick to the [[Korczowa-Krakovets border crossing]], because most cars going a long distance pass by this border crossing.
Take If you want to hitch towards Rzeszów and anywhere far away, you have at least two options. <br>Both the [[Korczowa-Krakovets border crossing]] and the [[Medyka-Shehyni border crossing]] are frequented by people driving long distances towards Kraków. The majority is local traffic though. Taking the ''Medyka-Shehyni border crossing'' is probably the faster option, as you can cross on foot (''not'' possible in Krakovets), which will save you the time needed to find a ride across the border, wait in the queue with them and undergo inspections of the car. Crossing on foot should be much faster. To get to the ''Korczowa-Krakovets border crossing'', take bus #125 from the central train station to the last stop in Ryasny ruske (''Рясне-Руське''), walk a bit further until you're directly behind the road crossing where cars and even trucks have a lot of space to stop.
Here the ring road traffic passes by as well. In case you get a ride until or over the border you can patiently stay there to find a long ride as.
To get to the ''Medyka-Shehyni border crossing'' from the central train station, you have two options. <br>
First lazy one is to take the minibus, see under [[#Public Transport|Public Transport]].
Second option is to walk down the road from the train station, at the crossing walk to the right, pass the small local train station, follow the road for another 500m (along a gas station), and walk right again at the next crossing. There you'll find a bus stop which is easy and fine to hitchhike rides out of town, which otherwise would be some 2 or 3 km of walking at least. Let you bring to the "Metro" shopping center thing, there you'll find a huge roundabout which roads going all directions, including Shehyni. There's also a very nice hitchhiking spot 100m further off the roundabout, with a restaurant next to it and satisfying light installations for night hitchhikers.
=== Northeast toward [[Rivne]], [[Kyiv|Kiev]] {{E|40}} M06 ===
Take marshrutka (minibus) #8, #14, #36A or #39 from near the Shevchenko monument in the city center. Go till the last stop ''Halytske perehrestya'' '''(Галицьке перехрестя)''' (except for #14 which goes a bit further, so ask the driver to stop at ''Halytske perehrestya''). All the buses stop in the middle of kinda market square. Look around, there must be a bus stop and a gas station hundred meters leftward and a bridge. Go under the bridge and walk 100m ahead. [http://maps.hitchwiki.org/?lat=49.877200532&lng=24.0642106533&zoom=16&trip=0&view=0 The hitchhiking spot] is in front of the gas station.

=== West towards [[Przemyśl]] ([[Poland]]) M11 ===
It's a fast way to Poland, because you don't have to cross in a car, but be aware that there is mostly local traffic going to polish supermarkets and doing business in the border region.
 
From the central train station, you have two options. First lazy one is to take the minibus, which costs 15 UAH (Nov 2009) and might be on the road for some 2 hours. For more, check the information below. Second option is to walk down the road from the train station, at the crossing walk to the right, pass the small local train station, follow the road for another 500m (along a gas station), and walk right again at the next crossing.

This direction enters Poland at the [[Medyka-Shehyni border crossing]].
=== East towards [[Ternopil]], [[Vinnytsia]] (H-02) ===
But because of bad quality of this road there are not many cars with far destination point. A lot of people going to Ivano-Frankivsk (Івано-Франківськ) by car use E50/M9 reaching Mykolayiv (Миколаїв) or Stryi (Стрий) and then turning directly to Ivano-Frankivsk. For more details see Southern direction.

=== Mini bus Minibus to Polish border ===
Not exactly hitching, but you can get a marshrutka (minibus) from the train station going to the closest Polish border point, the [[Medyka-Shehyni border crossing]], which is not far from [[Przemyśl]] in Poland and it is allowed to cross on foot. This minibus costs 25 UAH as of September 2014. Look or ask for one that says ''Lviv - Shegyni'' (Львів-Шегині)
