A local taxi from FCO airport to the city of inicino? Hi, In 2 week I will arrive around 2300 at the FCO Terminal 1 (from AMS to Alitalia) - too late to pick up with the planned shuttles for my hotels in the city of AMS. Think I should not use a Roma taxi with the price set at 48E, but look for a local taxi drive (Fiumicino) for the 4 km long local journey.
What should I do to get the local taxi - pick up a telephone line at the taxi line, speak to a taxi attendant in the taxi line (if one is present later in the night), or any other means?

The Des Moines airport wants to take action against taxi businesses.
Des Moines International Airport wants to restrict the number of taxi operators that can collect customers due to a rising incidence of customer complaint about the Des Moines taxi services. Kevin Foley, executive director of the airport, said on Tuesday that he wanted to restrict the airport taxi services to two businesses.
"It'?s a big issue we have to solve," said Mark Feldmann, board member of the airport authority. Serviceproblems occurred after Des Moines liberalized the local taxi sector, after drastic changes in national legislation aimed at improving competitive conditions between taxi operators and app-based rideshare operators such as Uber. By December, the town abolished its car rental regulations and fully liberalised taxi services.
Meanwhile, 20 taxi companies are registering to collect passenger at the airport. That' s up by five in 2015, Foley said. A lot of owners have only one or two driver and assembled automobiles. However, some calculate a minimal travel fare, do not disclose a schedule of charges in their automobiles and just pay money in advance - all violating the airport regulations, Foley said.
Foley said the airport is also wrestling with taxi operators who collect people from the terminals without signing up, and bypasses a system that calculates a charge for cabins entering the airport apron. In December, the airport will launch an invitation to tender for taxi services wishing to use the airport.
The limitation of the number of airport managers will allow airport administrations to react to problems when they arise, Foley said. In addition, it allows the airport to determine what charges may and may not be transferred to passengers and to make sure that they are in good state. Enterprises must have a certain number of working means of transport, although this number has not yet been fixed.
There are 15 taxi parking places in the terminals, some at the taxi rank near the luggage reclaim desk and others near the check-in desk. "Though we have Uber and Lyft, we always want a taxi service," Foley said. Previously, Salih Hamid, proprietor of Metro XL cab, had informed the Registry that the city's de-regulation had contributed to the expansion of local taxi businesses, as well as his seven-car subsidiary founded in May.
Said he was cautious about any changes to the directive that might restrict the possibilities. Mr Foley said that smaller taxi businesses can form a large group and advertise as long as there is a committed executive who can be approached if a problem arises.
