About 10 years ago I gave up trying to get around Moscow by vehicle. Drivers for the day can't find a place to park and you can't find them after your meeting. Taxis are almost unavailable and in either case Moscow traffic is so heavy it is impossible to get to meetings on time. The Metro is completely predictable. Trains come at least once every 2 minutes. There is more information now in English in the station but it is important to do a lot of preparation. You must have with you a map in both English and Russian of the metro system. I have not seen a printable map that is actually readable that has both languages. You must have a Russian map of where you need to go which you can get from Google maps. Most metro stations have many exits and unless you know the street names in Russian, you will have no idea which exit to take nor will you know where you are when you eventually find your way to street level. Moscow's metro stations are often hundreds of feet underground and the distance between different exits and entrances can be measured in 100s of meters.
