Modern buses are equipped with air conditioning, climate control system, multimedia devices for the passenger’s convenience.  For the safety of passengers, each route will be navigated by the GPS system, under the control of “Uzavtotrans Service” dispatchers. Long-distance communications according to these directions will be carried out daily from the bus station “Tashkent”.

And also, long-distance bus routes run from the “Abu Sahiy” bus station from Tashkent city to Bukhara, Urgench, Nukus and Uchkuduk.

Most regional bus services in Uzbekistan are operated by individual owners. They do not have a clear schedule, as well as there is no booking of tickets for these routes or advance purchase of tickets. As a rule, buses depart as soon as the cabin is filled, the fare is paid directly to the driver, upon the trip.

The exact fare must be specified directly with the driver.
