Taxis in Poznan

Poznan is a small Polish town on the Warta River. Once the capital of Poland, the Old Town Square of this quaint city is one of the most beautiful in Europe, lined with colourful heritage houses and the famous Town Hall clock.

For a small town, there is quite a bit to see and do, so for a convenient and stress-free way to get from A to B, we recommend taking a reliable Poznan Taxi. Grabbing a taxi in Poznan is very easy; you can wave one down from the street, call a local taxi company directly, walk to a designated taxi rank or book your trip online in advance.

Poznan taxi prices

Compared to other European cities, radio taxis in Poznan are relatively cheap. Poznan taxi fares are calculated using a taximeter based on tariffs set by the local government and legally, taxi companies are not allowed to charge more than this tariff. However, they can choose to set their prices lower which can lead to price variations between taxi companies. Thankfully, all taxis are required to display their fares on a window sticker so you know exactly what you are being charged.

An average fare breakdown is as follows:
Base fare incl. the first 1 km: €1.90 (PLN 8.20)
Price per km day (06:00 to 22:00): €0.85 (PLN 3.60)
Price per km night (22:00 to 06:00)/Sunday/holidays: €1.25 (PLN 5.40)
Waiting time fee per hour: €10.10 (PLN 44.0)

It is worth noting that taxi journeys beyond the city limits will cost double the price of those within the city and if you are travelling with extra luggage there may be additional charges, depending on your provider.

How to get a taxi in Poznan

For a city of just half a million residents, Poznan is very well connected and has a few dozen radio taxi companies working in and around the city. Each taxi company will look slightly different but official taxis will have the name and number of the company clearly marked, a taxi light, and a tariff sticker displayed in the window. You may come across non-official taxis that are not bound by government regulations or tariffs but it is best to stick with official radio taxis in Poznan as these are safer and generally cheaper. 

From the street, you can hail a Poznan taxi by raising your hand or you can walk to the nearest designated taxi rank. Taxi ranks are generally found outside major transportation hubs such as the airport and Poznan’s main railway station, as well as popular tourist attractions, shopping malls and hotels. You can also use the local taxi app, iTaxi, or phone one of the many local radio companies directly, which is recommended if you’re travelling late at night or during bad weather. Some of the most popular and trustworthy providers for radio taxi in Poznan are:

Poznan Association of Taxi Drivers: +48 61 8 519 519
Radio Taxi RMI FM: +48 61 8 219 219
Euro Taxi: +48 61 8 111 111 
M1 Taxi: +48 61 8 222 222

While there’s often no extra fee for this service, there can be long wait times, especially when it is raining or during peak hour traffic. If you prefer to arrange a pickup time in advance with a guaranteed price, you can always pre-book a private transfer with Welcome Pickups and have a professional driver meet you at your requested location.

Poznan Taxi Tips

  1. Check that the taximeter is running and has been reset to zero before starting your trip.
  2. Don’t accept rides from individuals approaching you on the street. Stick to the designated taxi ranks or hail an official radio taxi.
  3. Radio taxis in Poznan can provide a child's seat if notified in advance.

Wheelchair accessible taxis in Poznan

Poznan is a very wheelchair-friendly and accessible city with the majority of buses and trains equipped with ramps and specialised equipment. Euro Taxi provide wheelchair-accessible taxis but they need to be ordered 24 hours in advance by phoning +48 61 8 111 111 or emailing [email protected]. iTaxi has recently begun providing accessible service too, but they require a 3-day notice and the service is not available after 20:00; there may also be an additional charge for driver assistance.

Poznan taxi safety and complaints

Radio taxis in Poznan are required to use a taximeter and are highly regulated by the government so it is unlikely that you’ll encounter any issues when using a local cab. However, there have been instances of passengers being overcharged and mistreated in unregulated and ride-sharing taxis, which is why we recommend only using official radio taxi companies that have their company name and number written on the vehicle.

If you do encounter any issues during your journey, taxis are legally obliged to provide a receipt at the end of your trip with the taxi ID number and the driver’s details. You can then file a complaint directly with the taxi company or reach out to your nearest police department for serious matters.

Tipping is generally not part of Polish culture but it is becoming increasingly expected for tourists to tip. If you do choose to tip, 10% of the final fare price is a good rule of thumb to follow.

How do taxis in Poznan calculate their fares?

Radio taxis in Poznan calculate their fares using a taximeter. This takes into account the distance travelled and the time of day, with additional driver fees for wait times, tolls and surcharges.
