taxi Paris

Paris and its suburbs have nearly 16,000 licensed taxis. Usually you won't have a problem finding a cabday and night. The owner or operator of the taxi holds a licence permitting parking on the public highway while waiting for customers, in order to carry out, at their request and in exchange for payment, the private transport of people and their belongings.

 

 

 

Some tips to help you find a Taxi

 

How do you define a taxi?

It is a specially-equipped vehicle for up to 9 people, including the driver, for which the owner or operator holds a licence permitting parking on the public highway while waiting for customers, in order to carry out, at their request and in exchange for payment, the private transport of people and their belongings.

 

The special equipment comprises:
the illuminated “Taxi Parisien” sign on the roof of the taxi
a display meter showing the cost of the journey
a display at the rear of the vehicle and visible from the exterior which enables the monitoring of the daily duration of use of the vehicle
a plate fixed to the front right-hand wing of the vehicle bearing the licence number.

Attention! Anyone claiming to be a taxi driver who does not have a specially-equipped vehicle is illegal.

 

You can take a taxi:
- by hailing one in the street (it is free if the sign on the roof is lit up)
- at a taxi rank
- by calling one (see warning below) of the main taxi firms
