Buses or Trains to Odessa ?

From Galati is there any Trains or Buses that go to Odessa without going thru Chisineau? Going thru part of Moldova would be OK, but would like to avoid Transdniestr ?

There are no trains from Galati to Odessa (and generally from Galati across the border), but I think there is a bus, at least a few times per week.

If there isn't any direct bus to Odessa, you can easily hitchhike from Galati to Reni, the first city across the border in Ukraine (just 10km away from Galati) and from there you'll be able to take a bus to Odessa (or at at least to Izmail, a larger city in the region that has frequent connections both by train and bus to Odessa).

And don't worry about the other thing: the main route from Galati to Odessa does pass through a small part of Moldova, but not through Transnistria (in fact that area is quite far away).
