8. Public transportation in St. Petersburg: how does it work?

The best way to get around in St. Petersburg is by public transport, either by metro or by bus for those places where that the metro does not run.

To get to areas further away from the city (such as the Pulkovo Airport or the Catherine Palace) another good option is to take a taxi.

It is important to know the different transit tickets available in the city, for which there are three options: buy single tickets, buy a multipurpose unified ticket or get the Podorozhnik card.

In this section of the blog you will find information on how to get around by public transit in St. Petersburg and what type of ticket you’re interested in buying.
