      Buses of the route No. 388 “Sergiev Posad – Moscow” run every 10-15 minutes from the metro station “VDNH” in Moscow to the railway station of the city of Sergiev Posad. The return route is similar.

      The fare on the bus Moscow VDNH – Sergiev Posad: about 200 rubles.

      In Moscow, the conductor sells tickets immediately before departure,
      in Sergiev Posad there is a separate ticket office right at the bus stop where passengers are landing.

      In Moscow, bus number 388 leaves from the street. Cosmonauts, d. 2A. VDNH metro station – access to the All-Russian Exhibition Center (the first car from the center).

      The prices vary from 250 to 2500 rub per person and depend on the train you choose. See the timetable on the Russian railways company. Put Moscow in the field “departure” and Sergiev Posad in the field “arrival”.

    Hello, I will be in Moscow at the beginning of June and was wondering whether there are taxis available at the Sergev Posad train station to go to the city center?
    Thank you!

      Hello Silvia!
      Normally there are taxi at the station. Moreover, you can use Uber or Yandex Taxi (Russian analogue of Uber). They are more reliable than private taxi at the station.
