Can you tell me please if passengers have to buy any cards to pay for the public buses?
And is it possible to get to the new airport from the raiway station for 2 hours (on a Saturday morning: 7 – 9 am)?
And one more question, how can I book a transfer from this website if my russian bank card will not be accepted?
Thank you so much!
