"Taxi crime" Transportation Tip by JackRussel

Transportation, Mexico City: 36 reviews and 20 photos

Avoid at all costs taking taxis on the street.
There's been really bad cases of robberies, sexual assaults, and other violent crimes (including killings) perpetrated by taxi drivers and/or accomplices. See Lonely Planet Travelers Book for Mexico for more info.

Rather, call renowned taxi firms, and ask:
-name and ID number of the taxi driver coming to pick you up
- number plate of the taxi
You can also ask someone reliable (ex: hotel clerk) to note the plate number and where you intend to go.
