Taxi fares and info - Moscow, Russia
General taxi fares
The taxi fare system in Moscow depends on which company you choose; some charge by distance, some by time only, and some companies only offer set rates. Typically, you pay a fixed sum of 115-175 rubles for the first 30 minutes, and then 4-6 rubles per minute.
Finding a taxi
Taxis in Moscow are hard to come by, and are usually only found outside bigger hotels and train stations. Official taxis come in all colors, but are recognized by their large roof taxi signs.
Trying to flag down a taxi in the street will very likely lead to not only stopping taxis, but also private cars, trying to make some extra money. Although many Russians use these "gypsy cabs" and it's usually a safe practice, it's not recommended: they might try to rip you off. Since they're unregistrered, you've nowhere to turn to afterwards.
When you need a taxi, it's best to order it by phone, and to ask for an approximate price.
