Panevėžys is a town in Lithuania.

Hitching Out

North towards Riga (Latvia)

To catch a ride to Latvia, you need to take city bus Nr15 towards Piniava and get out at the last stop (Called "Piniava"). Walk towards the river, cross the bridge and find a place to stand safely and hitch-hike.

If you are only passing Panevėžys by, you may be dropped out at the junction with the Panevėžys ring south of the city; it is a bit more difficult to hitchhike there.

You can also pass by the city if your driver is only going to Panevėžys. Just follow the main road always straight for about 5km. The road north out of the city is quite good to hitchhike - cars are not going too fast and there are many convenient places to stop.

West towards Šiauliai

Take buses Nr.1, 3, 13, 14 towards Kniaudiškių st and get out at the last stop close to a big supermarket "Babilonas". Then cross the street called Klaipėdos. You can try to hitch-hike there and start walking a bit more out of the city.

South towards Vilnius and Kaunas

Take bus Nr.16 and get out in the last bus stop "Prekybos bazė", cross the street and walk until you see another bus stop, that's your place http://hitchwiki.org/maps/?place=7320.

If you are going to Vilnius you should have a cardboard sign telling that.Another way is to get any ride from the same place as you would go to Kaunas,and leave after ~5km near the junction where the motorway starts and try your luck there.There is more traffic as well as cars are going faster.

To Klaipėda

There are two ways to get to Klaipėda from Panevėžys:going through Šiauliai or going towards Kaunas and getting out by the turn http://goo.gl/maps/KpsF to highway Kaunas-Klaipėda(E85,A1) and getting another ride. It's up to you to choose.I prefer going towards Kaunas and switching the ride.This route is only 33km(20.5 miles) longer, but you will have to change rides less often as most people in the highway are heading towards Klaipėda.
