Is there Uber in St. Petersburg, Russia?

The answer is: "Yes". And yes, Uber is a great tool for getting a ride quickly. The drawback is that you'll never be sure of the quality of service delivered by the Uber driver. Most of the cheap rides are provided by migrant drivers from former Soviet republics. Their driving skills are very much questionable from time to time. Nevertheless, we're always suggesting to not book the cheapest option from the choice of vehicle proposed.
