Guadalajara Taxi Fares

Taxis in Guadalajara are supposed to be fitted with working, officially calibrated taximeters. However, as these devices sometimes don’t work or your driver might prefer not to use theirs, if you’re uncertain, it’s best to agree with your driver on a set fare before beginning your journey. If your driver does have a working taximeter, the fares will be calculated as follows. 

Base price: €1.50 (MXN 30)

Price per km: €0.50 (MXN 10)

Waiting / per 1 hour: €10 (MXN 200)

It’s worth noting that taking a Guadalajara taxi at night will have a 15% increase in the fare. If you’re taking a taxi in Guadalajara but outside the main city ring, the fare will increase by 40%.
