WelcomeTaxi is the first English-language transportation service in Russia created especially for foreign tourists, business travelers and expats. For many years it was the only one in this country.

Airport transfers in Saint Petersburg

There are different options to get from Saint Petersburg to Pulkovo Airport (LED), the only international airport serving the city.

If you choose public transport option, you need to reach Moskovskaya metro station and take bus No. 39 from there to Pulkovo airport. It is obviously the most savy way, even if it is suitable only for those travelling without big luggage and those having some knowledge of Saint Petersburg urban transportation system.

Taxi remains the most common way to reach Pulkovo Airport from the city of Saint Petersburg. To order your taxi, you can use of the taxi or ridesharing apps available here, including Yandex.Taxi and Uber Russia (the last is a local app, your original Uber app will not work in Russia). However, prepare some cash in rubles before to get in your taxi cab, since your European or American credit card will hardly be linked with neither of local Russian apps. Furthermore, don't expect that a Saint Petersburg cabby will be able to speak even one single English word. Yet another problem you'll face is that taxi apps will not offer you pre-booking, but only ordering ASAP. And finally, seriously think about your safety: most taxi drivers in Saint Petersburg are underpaid young immigrants from Central Asia, who spend 12, 15 or more hours in their cabs trying to gain some money at the end of shift after paying car rent and fueling their cars.

Pre-booked transfer is undoubtedly the most safe, reliable and convenient option to get from Saint Petersburg to Pulkovo Airport. You can choose any of transfer companies offering their services on Internet. But we urge you to consider WelcomeTaxi as the first option, because it is one of very few agencies offering you an English-speaking driver at very affordable and competitive price.

Railway station transfers in Saint Peterburg

Metro is obviousy the most cost-saving option to get from Finland Station, Moskovsky Station or any other railway station to your Saint Petersburg home. It can be also rather convenient option, but only if you travel without luggage and if you perfectly know how to reach your Saint Petersburg hotel by public transport.

For what concerns taxi, in Saint Petersburg you will not find a queue of cabs waiting for their passengers on taxi stand in front of railway station, as in any other European or North American city. Instead, you are supposed to order taxi using Yandex.Taxi, Uber Russia or any other taxi app available in this city. Taxis in Saint Petersburg are really very cheap in comparison with Europe. However, apart of the above mentioned card payment and safety issues, take in consideration that it will be not very easy to find your cab among dozens of other cabs near the station, especially since your taxi driver almost for sure will not be able to communicate with you by phone in English.

Thus, the best way to reach your hotel from Moskovsky, Finland or any other railway station is to pre-book and pre-pay your railway station transfer in Saint Petersburg. Your driver will meet you with the name tag straight on the exit from the platform (or even at wagon door) and will safely drive you to any destination inside or outside the city.

City rides in Saint Petersburg

St. Petersburg metro is, of course, the quickiest and the cheapest way to move between different points within the city. If you are in a hurry, if you are not very enthusiastic about studying the St. Petersburg urban transportation system and if you are not discouraged by language, payment and safety issues described above, than your preferable transportation option may also be taxi on demand. However, if you plan your journey at least one day in advance, if you prefer to move safely and in style, then you should consider pre-booked transfer in the city, too. Although we are focused mainly on airport transfers, of course we can offer you also rides between any other locations inside or outside the city of Saint Petersburg.
