Getting Around in MOSCOW

Metros - The best way to get around to the different attractions or areas in Moscow is to opt for the Metro which is a convenient, comfortable and fast way to travel. Other than the fact that they come with cheap ticket prices every metro station of Moscow is ostentatiously decorated with ornate materials which reflect the city’s artistic brilliance and make them attractions in themselves. The Metro operates from 5.20 am to 1 am. Rush hours may see the Metro overcrowded and so is best avoided by tourists who are not used to jostling through the thronging crowds.

Buses, Trams and Trolleys - Buses, Trams and Trolleys or Av’tobus, tram’vai and Tro’leibus as they are called are available in plenty but do not operate on scheduled timings. These means of public transport run from 5.30 in the morning to 1am. For tickets for buses, trams and trolleys you can get your tickets at the Metro, from the kiosks at the locality or from the drivers of the transport means directly.

Taxis - For traveling late night, taxis are the only option. Cabs can be booked directly by waving your hand or over the phone.
