TAXIS

The cost for this service is set based on a price per units (68 pesos per unit). The amount of units is established according to the distance covered (1 unit per each 100 meters) and/or to the waiting time (1 unit per each 30 seconds waiting). When a taxi is taken, a starting price is charged; currently, it is a minimum charge of 3.400 pesos . It is suggested, for the user´s safety, to call a central dispatch office for taxis and request the service.

Additionally, there are three different extra charges that can cause a price increase. One of them occurs when a route to or from the El Dorado Airport or the Puente Aéreo is carried out; this entails an additional cost of 3.400 pesos. Another one occurs when the service is used during the night (from 8.00pm to 5.00am), during holidays or on Sundays; this entails a 1.600 pesos extra charge. The last one occurs when a call to de central dispatch office for taxis is done to request the service; this entails a 600 pesos extra charge.
