A local taxi driver waiting for customers
Taxi is always a nice option to move around in Islamabad and its sister city Rawalpindi. Minimum fare is around Rs. 20 ( appox 35 cents). One way trip on taxi between twin cities cost around Rs. 150 ( appox $ 2.6).
Taxis are not meter controled and there is no air conditioning. Most of taxis are old model cars in poor condition. The point here is that you always have to bargain before hiring a taxi.
It you are not a Pakistani then these texi drivers would charge you too much. So you better confirm rates from some local person before hiring a taxi.
