Flag fall Y8 (Y1.20 per km) has increased in line with many other major cities.
Both drivers and passengers are by law not permitted to smoke in taxis although this is largely ignored. Only ever seen one taxi with a NO smoking sign inside.

Drivers are also permitted to multi fare passengers so be sure you know your fare and agree on it before you get in.

The distinctive bee yellow of the regular Chongqing taxi is a rather appropriate colour as they work hard to move people around the city.

Beware of the swarms that hover around bus stops or stations, especially after dark looking for multiple long distance fares which dont require using the meter.  One example is taxi returning to Lianglu in the vacinity of the Airport.

Chongqings taxi fleet is gradually being upgraded with the introduction of the new Suzuki last year, which offers a very smooth and comfortable ride.

More recently a larger White Taxi was introduced to service the Airport and can sometimes be found around major International Hotels.

Taxis will often be hard to find from about 3.00pm until 6.00pm which is when they are returning to base to refuel for a change of shift and unless you are going where they are headed you may have to wait for some time and fight for your turn.
