Buses 39 and 39ex stop at the Moskovskaya Metro Station. From the latter, the L2 line of St. Petersburg passes.
The 39EX Express Bus makes a direct journey, without making stops, every 25 or 30′. The journey takes about 20 minutes. It runs every day from 05:25 to about midnight and the ticket costs 40RUB (about €0.50)

On all taxis you can pay in cash or by credit card. Don’t forget to leave a tip (preferably in cash) of 10-15% of the fare.

Directly at the airport, you can rent a car at one of the numerous agencies present. In our opinion, it is preferable to opt for the taxi, and travel around the city with the convenient public transport.
