Although the routes 239 and 384 are both advertised to be between Kaliningrad and Klaipėda, the two terminals are different: The Kaliningrad terminal of route 239 operated by KönigAuto is located at the company’s private “international bus station”, some distance from the city centre, and the bus only reaches the old pier of Smiltynė at the northern end of the Curonian Spit for Klaipėda, passengers must take the ferry to cross the harbour to the city centre; route 384 operated by Klaipėda Bus Park starts from the bus station in Kaliningrad city centre near the South Railway Station, and the bus cross the harbour by vehicle ferry and arrives at the bus station near Klaipėda train station.

After the competition on August 3, we drove to Riga to prepare for the sprint race of the next day. On the way, the internal border between Lithuania and Latvia is crossed.
