Taxi in St. Petersburg: sites, apps and prices
Taxi is an urban transport that is no longer a luxury. Unfortunately, tourists who come to St. Petersburg quite often become victims of indecent drivers. A twenty-minute trip can cost a pretty penny to the guests of our city. Let's talk about how to ride a taxi without harming your finances.
Most likely, you will need a taxi right after you arrive in St. Petersburg. Few people wish to go with heavy suitcases into public transport. Tip: never take a car from taxi drivers who are waiting at the railway station or at the airport. It makes no sense to overpay three to four times for a trip.
At the airport, go to the Taxi Pulkovo counter and book a car at an affordable price. As for the railway stations, we recommend you to use the official city taxi Lyubimyy Gorod (Favourite City). On the site you can calculate the cost of the trip in advance and book a taxi for a specific time.
What are other situations when you need a car? For example, you want to look at the drawbridges, and then return to your hotel. Another situation: you decide to hit the bars-clubs on Rubinstein / Dumskaya / Liteyny and got a little carried away. Finally, the most common situation is that you have enjoyed the sights of St. Petersburg all day long and are so tired that you can barely move your feet.
The fastest and cheapest way to book a taxi is using the mobile applications Uber, Gett, CityMobil, Bolt or Yandex.Taxi. You can select the comfort level, leave a comment on the order and the car will arrive in just a few minutes. The price of the trip will be known immediately; at night, the cost of a taxi trip is much lower. Payment is made with your credit card or in cash. If a conflict arises, you can contact the support service. If you did not like the driver, you can write about it in the review.
There is such thing as a social taxi. It is provided for people with disabilities; two people can travel as caregivers. You can check out all the details on the city portal. You can also use the car-sharing service - car rental by the minute.
We highly recommend that you do not hitch a ride on the street. Do not put your life at risk.
