"Taxi" Wuxi Transportation Tip by mychina

Wuxi Transportation: 6 reviews and 6 photos

Wuxi taxi drivers normally don't speak English. If you meet one who does then you are really lucky. In downtown there is no difficulty to find a cab except when it's raining, then it can be very tricky. Drivers are volontarily using the meter so you don't need to bargain the tariff. Basic Fee is 8+1 RMB per 3 km. Although the meter starts at 8 RMB there is a fuel surcharge of 1 RMB that you have to pay for the ride. You can get a receipt (fapiao) if you ask for it. The taxis are a little bit old fashioned compared to Shanghai, most of them are older Santana's or Jetta's - but that's still ok in comparison to other more rural areas in China.
