Taxi - telephone numbers - or best alternate way

We are arriving in St. Pete via Helsinki next week, mid-day. We arrive around 1400 and need to get to our apartment around 1500. The apartment lady said it may take about 40 minutes by taxi. How much should I expect to pay for this trip? (2 Adults, 2 children)

Any GOOD numbers for taxis in St. P that I can program into my cell? I have tried a couple in advance and all seem not in in service. Or, any good sites where one can book in advance online?

We are going to the ballet our second night and will have same need to order taxi as I believe our apartment is a bit off the beaten path.

Thanks so much in advance. I am STRESSING! :-) We've done loads of travelling in the past 7 years, but this one is beginning to weigh a little on me.

I flew to California last Tuesday on a flight that required me to be picked up about 8a.m.. I called 6000000 the night before and the dispatcher told me the firm price from my city center apartment to the airport was 510Rubles. 15 minutes before the taxi was to be there the dispatcher called to make sure I was ready and then again when the taxi was waiting out on the street. Very simple, very cheap and very professional.

I have been here in California for less than a week and I am really missing St Petersburg and counting the days before I can return (24 and counting) unless I can change flights and return earlier.
