Book a taxi on-line and get a discount!
The Rutaxi cite allows you to order a taxi easily in all major cities of Russia at a discounted rate. Besides being cheaper than a cab on the street, you don’t have to speak Russian and you may know the price before you travel so you don’t have to worry about a driver taking the scenic route for more money.
All you need is a phone with a Russian SIM card. This will allow you to obtain a login, get order confirmation, status updates and inform you when your taxi has arrived as well as the car model and license plate number. If you spend a lot of time in Russia, the Rutaxi site can even save your favourite addresses so ordering a taxi is as easy as 1, 2, 3... Besides a flat rate, you may order by the hour.

The SMS will respond with rutaxi.ru: and a 5 or 6 digit password. From there enter your password in the correct field and click Next. You will now be directed to the order a taxi page.
