Miami taxi prices
Taxis in Miami usually calculate your fare using a taximeter. Although some taxi drivers may offer a set-rate fee for certain journeys, this is rare. Your driver should always have the meter clearly visible and running throughout your journey. You will then pay the fare shown on the meter once you reach your destination.
Base Fare – €2.45
Price per 1/6 mile (up to first mile) – €0.70
Price per 1/6 mile (after first mile) – €0.33
It’s worth mentioning that you may also be charged for things such as keeping your driver waiting (€0.33 per minute or €19.90 per hour), rides originating at the airport (€1.66) and any toll roads that you may pass through during your journey.
