"Taxi" Shanghai Transportation Tip by simcard

Shanghai Transportation: 277 reviews and 350 photos


There are different taxi companies in Shanghai, and of course, with different qualities. If you want the best service, always look for the cab with the color as it shows in the picture. Otherwise, the white cab and orange one can be good too.

Getting a taxi during rainy days or during rush hours is just impossible in Shanghai. I wish I could give u some tips but I still haven't found out yet.. I personally just avoid going out during that time if I have to depend on taxi to get around!

When you get out of the airport, always always always go to the taxi line to get your ride. There will be people approaching u to use their taxi. Do NOT follow them. Those are the ones without taxi license and they usually like to rip off people who are new to the city. They don't issue u receipts either and u can't even find a place to complain if something bad happens.
