8. Public transportation in Moscow: How does it work?

The best way to get around Moscow is by Metro, although it has the disadvantage that, except for downtown, the network of stations is not very dense. So in the areas further from the city center, you have to combine it with ground transportation: bus, trolleybus or tram.

To get to areas further away from the city or to the airport, another good option is to take a taxi.

It’s also important to know the different transit tickets used in the city, the main one being the Troika card, a reusable contactless plastic card for traveling by any means of public transit in Moscow.

In this section of the blog you will find information on how to get around Moscow by public transit and on the type of ticket you are interested in buying.
