Taxi numbers are displayed at the taxi ranks and listed in the yellow pages.
www.pagesjaunes.fr (in English and French)
These include :
Taxi Bleus (tel: (01) 4936 1010),
Alpha Taxis (tel: (01) 4585 8585) and
Abeille Radio Taxi (tel: (01) 4583 5933).
Taxis can be hailed at airports, stations and at taxi ranks (arrêts taxis) but can be hard to find, especially when most in demand - Friday and Saturday nights. A yellow light displayed on the roof shows that the taxi is available for hire; an orange light shows the taxi is in use.
A daytime journey in central Paris tends to cost FFr40-FFr80/EUR6-10 (tariff A). Journeys after 1900, on Sundays, bank holidays and in the suburbs are more expensive (tariff B). The most expensive rate (tariff C) applies for the suburbs and airports at night and districts outside Paris during the day. There are additional charges for pick-up (about FFr13/EUR2), pick-up at a mainline station (FFr5/EUR0.80), waiting time (about FFr135/EUR20.50 an hour), a fourth passenger (FFr10/EUR1.50 but always ask the driver first) and for luggage (FFr6/EUR0.90 per item over 5kg).
Tipping is not compulsory but drivers expect about 10%.
