Taxi in Bucharest
All the taxis in Bucharest are yellow, they have a meter and the "Taxi" sign above and the operation license and the tariffs on the doors, outside. The tariff per kilometer is about 1.39 lei / km and there is an initial charge for departing that equals the price of one kilometer. Some taxi companies with expensive cars may charge 3.5 lei / km.
All taxis have electronic meters and the driver must start the meter as soon as he departs. If the driver doesn't start the meter, you should ask him to start it. Our recommendation is to use a taxi only if you must to do that and to pay attention to the tariff written on the driver or passenger door, outside.
