Average Taxi Price per MileTaxi average price per mile
It has something to do with the taxi's image that gives you the feeling that you are being cheated, especially because you are often not sure how much your trip will charge until you reach your goal. Against this backdrop - and given that cabs have an ever-weaker image than excessively expensive used vehicles on-line - today saw the publication by Cab Price Index of a taxi price index that shows the price of a taxi in 80 towns around the globe.
The study investigated aspects such as the costs per kilometre, the costs for a journey of three kilometres and standard tariffs from the airports to the town centre. He also considered the most beloved automobiles used by taxi riders to distinguish between legitimate and non-licensed taxis, and determined whether Uber was available in every town ("spoiler alarm": it is in 65 towns).
Tourism information pages and airports pages provided the rough cost, and in cases where the municipality adjusted the price of taxi, information was collected from government information. Although the survey took the average measured price, a taxi through Manhattan during peak hours will always distort the price of a normal trip.
Price in the index is, however, similar to those elsewhere, even include the Price of Travel 2017 listing. In terms of the least costly town to call a taxi, Cairo came in first, with the average price of a three-kilometer trip (about 1.86 miles) of 55 inches. Zurich was the most costly town, with average journeys of $25.25 for the same route.
While New York placed 43 out of 80 (three kilometers was $7.84), Los Angeles placed slightly higher, with the same route priced $8.73. Here you will find the ten lowest and most costly towns for taxi; the complete listing can be found here. Call your journeys accordingly.
