I' m going to tell you my top tip is to use Uber in Bogota. It' s virtually the same cost as a regular cab and a much more enjoyable and safe trip! In order to get to the point, the simplest way to compute your taxis rate if you have a smart phone is to use the calculation tool or the Tappsi application, which I will discuss below.
I know, however, that not everyone has a smart phone in Bogota, so here's how to calculate your ticket price the tough way! Bogotá taxis are quite bewildering. On the back of the front passengers seats should hang a map page (see photo), which contains the name of the rider and the number plates of the taxis as well as the rate in the shape of a lattice.
When you have summoned the cab to collect you, or have ordered it via a portable application (Tappsi or EasyTaxi on Apple and Android), you will have to charge an extra 800 pesos. One of the simplest ways to deal with this amazing system is to simply click on the "Calculadora de tarifas" button to fill in the number shown on the counter and check all other applicable charges - the application will then charge you the amount you owed.
Tappsi application now contains a calculator. In case you don't have a smart phone, make sure that a copy of the rate is shown on the back of the front passengers seats (if necessary, ask the rider for "la tarifa" and he should show it) and that you write down the above fees because if it is clear that you are a visitor and that you are not comfortable with the system, the riders will take full benefit and bill you more than they should.
Another popular gimmick is that cab riders consciously take the longest possible path to their destinations, so you end up getting more money. Have a look at these articles to get more hints on driving a cab in Bogota and to find out what's going on with Uber in Bogota.
