The official vehicles of the taxi service in Rome are colored white with a taxi led top light display. The Rome city council’s symbol as well as the taxi licence number are both clearly displayed on the car front doors and inside the vehicle (rear doors left) and taximeter inside.
You find them in taxi parking or calling; Roma Capitale provides a telephone service for calling a taxi, simply call 060609 (an automated answer system linked directly to the closest taxi rank).
Before commencing the journey, unless the journey is for a fixed fare in which case this does not apply, check that the taximeter is switched on (situated above the dashboard or on the upper section of the windscreen). Should it not be switched on, ask the driver to do so. Always ask for a receipt of payment.
Initial Fixed Fee:
mileage fare €0,10
and is based on a charge per kilometre and a charge for the journey time:
The taximeter shifts from T1 to T2 when the initial fixed fare on the taximeter has clocked up a further € 11.00 from that time onwards the T2 fare is applied until a further € 13.00 have been clocked up; from then on the third fare, T3, is applied until the end of the journey. The fares stated above are applied when the taxi is travelling at more than 20 km/h. At speeds of less than 20 km/h, taximeter ticks are clocked up on a timed basis. The approximate cost per hour is € 27.00.
A discount of 10% is applicable to the amount stated on the taximeter in the following cases:
