Taxi fares and info - San Francisco, USA


Finding a taxi

San Francisco is not known as a great taxi city, and finding a cab can be very difficult at times. Hailing them in the street might prove impossible, but cabs can usually be found outside larger hotels and tourist attractions.

If you're taking a cab to the airport with a plane to catch, it's wise to make a reservation well ahead. Taxis are recognized by their roof signs, which are lit when they are available.


General taxi fares

Taxi cars generally use the taximeter, which start at $3.10 and includes the first 1/5 mile. After that, you pay about $2.20 per mile. The taxi driver will expect a tip of about 10-15%.
