Communication iwith Kiwi Taxi in preparation of our arrival was well timed and to the point. We had a very communicative, safe and punctual driver who used the usual rush hour traffic to give us a little guided tour of St. Petersburg en route to the hotel.

Transfers vs. Other Ways to get from Saint Petersburg Pulkovo Airport

Saint Petersburg has many times become the best tourist destination in Europe. Besides it is one of the most visited cities in Russia: more than 9 million tourists come here annually to have a look at Saint Isaac's Cathedral, visit Hermitage or have a walk in Petergof. In the northern capital there are even more tourists than the locals. This article will help you choose a convenient transportation way to the city without getting lost in tourist crowds.

How to Get from Pulkovo Airport to city center or the other way round

Relatively small airport of Pulkovo receives more than 13 million people a year and around 260 planes a day. Only one terminal is open for all passengers - “Pulkovo-1”. It is 10km away from the nearest subway station. There are some options to cross this distance:

  • bus №39 and fixed-route taxi К39. In this way, one can get to metro station “Moskovskaya”. Buses come every 12–20 minutes, fixed-route taxis — every 5–10 minutes;
  • express bus №39э, which can also take you to metro station “Moskovskaya”, but without stops. It comes every 25–30 minutes;
  • taxi, which can be taken on-site or booked via the app;
  • transfer, booked online in advance.

Buses and fixed-route taxis make a stop in front of the arrival zone exit. Public transport stops operating around 1 am, so everyone arriving at night, will only be able to leave airport by transfer or taxi.

Transfer from Pulkovo Airport vs. Taxi booked via the app

Advantages of a private transfer

You will get the car you ordered. When ordering transfer, you can be sure that at the airport you will be picked up by the very same car you chose on the site. Taxi apps can promise you the car you chose, but the driver may have other plans.

The price will not change because of bridge opening. Exact transfer price is already known during the booking and does not depend on traffic jams, bridge opening or other circumstances. And expected costs, calculated by the taxi app, can change considerably. You will be informed about it only when you get in the car.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Minimum 10 euro price difference. Local taxi services as well as Yandex.Taxi, GetTaxi and Uber will take you from the airport to the central district for 8-11,5 euro. Transfer from Saint Petersburg Airport costs 21,5 euro.

Transfer vs. Taxi from Saint Petersburg Airport to city center (taken on-site)

Advantages of a private transfer

Avoid long lines. Official Pulkovo taxi service announces in its ads: «We meet you first!». In fact, what you will see first is a long queue. There will be plenty of tourists willing to get a taxi from Saint Petersburg Airport, so you will have to wait.

Safe from scams. There are plenty of stories in internet how illegal taxi drivers scam tourists. Initiating card games with fake trip companions has already become Pulkovo classic. In case of transfer, you are the only client in the car and the only goal of the driver is to bring you comfortably to your destination.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

More expensive. Official Pulkovo taxi rate depends on city district, where you are heading to. For example, a trip to Admiralteysky district will cost 13,5 euro. Transfer price on the same route — 22,5 euro. What sum you will lose, opting for freelance drivers, is difficult to foresee.

Transfer vs. Buses and fixed-route taxis from Saint Petersburg Pulkovo Airport

Advantages of a private transfer

More comfortable for you and your luggage. In fixed-route taxis and buses there is often not enough space for people, let alone suitcases. Our transfers are spacious and have a big trunk.

Without transport changes. All the public transport from Pulkovo goes only to the nearest metro station, where you need to make a change. Transfers will always bring you directly to your destination without making any stops.

Minimum twice as fast. Travel time of bus from airport to metro station “Moskovskaya” is 30-35 minutes. Minibuses and express buses will be a bit faster — 20 minutes. But it is only travel time. Additionally, waiting time can take around 30 minutes. With the transfer you can get from the airport to metro station “Moskovskaya” in 10 minutes.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

Much more expensive. Public transport fare will cost you 0,50 euro + additional fee for luggage. The transfer from the airport to the hotel in Saint Petersburg center will cost you 15,5 euro.
