In the history of post-war tram there was one line that existed for about three years and linked Voskresenska Slobidka and other housing estates with newly built Darnycia metro station, which was the terminus of single metro line in Kiev. For this reason the new tram route # 34 was opened while already existing routes # 29-33 were switched to this terminus. When one more metro stretch with a new station was constructed in 1968 tram line was dismantled. Pictured is one of T-2 that were servicing one of the routes at vul. Popudrenka

As there was no direct tram service to Vodopark and Lisovy housing estates (although there were plans to build tram line there), bus route 79 linked those housing estates with Komsomolska (nowadays Czernihivska) metro station. Pictured is Ikarus 556 on a terminus near the metro station.
