Trains are clockwork, poezd.rw.by, however, US issued cards are often not accepted by the system.

I guess you'd have to travel to Gomel and change for Kiev-bound train. And that's all assuming you have a Belarusian visa.

Greetings, everyone.

Thank you again for the guidance!

Train system: I visited the website poezd.rw.by for the train schedule from Brest to Kiev, Ukraine. My search did not find a train schedule between Brest and Kiev, Ukraine.

I queried the schedule from Brest to Gomel (Homiel) and Gomel (Homiel) the Kiev, Ukraine. If anyone knows of another train website which reflects a “direct” query, then please inform me.

Bus system: What is a good website to learn the bus schedule between Brest and Kiev, Ukraine?

Thank you again!

there does not exist a direct railroad between Brest and Kiev. There are rails but last time this train went some 40 years ago.

If you don't like spending 12 hours on a bus, you could take a bus to Kovel, Ukraine and catch a train to Kiev from there.

Going through Gomel is not convenient.
