How do you call a TaxiWhat do you do to call a cab?
The majority of Miami taxi cars are colored green, although you will also see some that are colored green (from smaller companies). Miami licenced drivers' cabs must also display "taxi" or "taxi" and the telephone number on both sides of the vehicle as well as the vehicle and driver's licenses clearly in the vehicle. In case a taxi behaves like a taxi and does not belong to these colours, it is possible that you are driving an illegal taxi.
Specifically, we recommend singles to keep out of unauthorized taxis just to be on the safer side. A way to ensure that you get into a licenced taxi is to go to one of the taxi stations in Miami. The counters begin at $2.50 in Miami, with each 1/6 of a kilometer being 40¢.

In case you do not call and have been able to call a taxi to drive outside these areas, ask the chauffeur for a pre-determined fare before agreeing to drive. It will generally be less expensive than waiting for him to tell you what it is at the end of the trip.
All over South Florida, if you get into a taxi and don't see a driving licence in front of the front man's car sit, get out and call another taxi service no matter what the taxi service says. It' s not about security (there are very few taxi-related crime in Miami), but because if you drive in a taxi without a current driver's licence and there is an event or crash, you may not be able to legally call the drivers to account.
