Hitching Out

West towards Omsk

From the central train station, take minibus #1122 towards the airport and get out at the second last bus stop Puteprovod, located at a huge roundabout already out of town. The bus rides is about 30min, best is to ask the driver to let you out at the end of the huge roundabout, there walk to the left and start hitching just at the beginning of the road towards Omsk (M51).

East towards Yurga, Kemerovo, Tomsk Take a bus 1243 (to Pasino) leaving from the busstop at Kalinina square (metro Kalinina). "Puteprovod" is the name of the bus-stop from where you will have to walk around 5 mins towardss the Traffic police station. There is a very good point to stay some meters after the police office. Most of cars are driving to Yurga, Kemerovo or Tomsk. So it is better to wait for those lifts and skip the locals.
