Taxis in Paris

Because cabs are so scarce, hailing one can be a source of major frustration, but the city is trying to improve the situation with 24-hour cab service at taxi stands around major transportation hubs, such as L’Étoile or République. The meter starts at $3.25 and the minimum charge is $8.75, with a 10-minute ride averaging about $15. If you’re having trouble hailing one, try the central number for Paris taxis (33-1-45-30-30-30), or splurge on a premium taxi from Taxis G7 (33-1-47-39-47-39; www.taxisg7.com); you can reserve these seven days in advance, which is helpful for airport runs.
