Taxis : guidelines

How do you define a taxi?

It is a specially-equipped vehicle for up to 9 people, including the driver, for which the owner or operator holds a licence permitting parking on the public highway while waiting for customers, in order to carry out, at their request and in exchange for payment, the private transport of people and their belongings.
The special equipment comprises :

  • the illuminated “Taxi Parisien” sign on the roof of the taxi
  • a display meter showing the cost of the journey
  • a display at the rear of the vehicle and visible from the exterior which enables the monitoring of the daily duration of use of the vehicle
  • a plate fixed to the front right-hand wing of the vehicle bearing the licence number

Attention! Anyone claiming to be a taxi driver who does not have a specially-equipped vehicle is illegal.

You can take a taxi :

  • by hailing one in the street (it is free if the sign on the roof is lit up and green)
  • at a taxi rank
  • by calling one of the main taxi firms (click here to see the list of main taxi firms)
  • the unique number for all the firms: +33 (0)1 45 30 30 30

Vehicle hire with driver

Haut de page

Unlike taxis which offer a public service, cars with a driver (VTC) created in 2009 are private companies whose vehicles do not have a taxi sign on the roof nor a metre inside and which can only accept passengers if a booking has been previously been made for them. Services are personalized and a fixed price is decided on in advance.  A variety of vehicles are offered including cars, minivans and limousines.
