Crimea. Public transport

How to get from Simferopol to Yalta, Sevastopol... whatever

From Simferopol International airport to ...

There are no bus station at International airport Simferopol. So if you plan to use the public transport to go to Yalta, Sevastopol, Feodosia etc. you first should to go to the bus station. Note, airport situated at the North end of Simferopol, in about 10-12 km. from city center (see here: map of Simferopol). There are several bus stations in Simferopol. The most convenient bus station is situated at the Simferopol train station. From here buses go to Yalta, Sevastopol, Yevpatoria, Sudak, Kerch etc. every 10-25 minutes.

How to get from airport to train station in Simferopol

Public transport stop is situated just in 50-60m. from the main arriving terminal. Take any bus or trolleybus (electric bus) and it will definitely go through the train station.
Another option to go from airport to one of cities in Crimea is to take a taxi. Normal price for standard car is something around 12-15 times more expensive, than a price of public transport. At airport you will be «attacked» by a huge number of taxi drivers, offering their services. I would say, booking a transfer in advance is always better and cheaper.
