Cost of a Tijuana Taxi
Although all Tijuana taxis should be fitted with an officially calibrated taximeter, many drivers don’t have one in their taxi, or you may come across a driver whose taximeter isn’t working. If this is the case, you can wait for another taxi or agree on a price with the driver before beginning your journey. On the other hand, if your driver does have a working taximeter fitted, the fares will be charged as follows:
Base fare: €1.50 (MXN 30)
Price per km: €1.10 (MXN 23)
Waiting fee per 1 hour: €9 (MXN 180)

Tijuana Taxi Tips
- Be sure to agree on a fixed fare with your driver before beginning your journey if the taxi doesn’t have a meter.
- Not all Tijuana taxi drivers speak English, be sure to write down addresses or show the driver on your phone.
- Taxis in Tijuana don’t accept card payments, you must pay in either Mexican Pesos or USD in cash.
- Tipping isn’t expected but is always appreciated. You can add up to 10-15% to your final fare.
Wheelchair Accessible Tijuana Taxi Company
In general, Tijuana isn’t the most wheelchair-friendly place to visit. This is also true when it comes to finding transportation for wheelchair users looking for a vehicle with a ramp or hydraulic lift. The standard Tijuana taxi cabs don’t offer these services, so you will have to book in advance with a specialised transport provider. One Tijuana taxi company that does offer wheelchair-accessible vehicles and other special medical transport is Pro Shuttle.
Tijuana Taxi Safety and Complaints
Taking a taxi in Tijuana is usually safe and reliable. However, as there are quite a few different private taxi companies working throughout the city, you may get varied levels of service. If you do experience any issues such as overcharging, a rude driver or feel your safety is at risk, you can call the tourist police helpline on 078. Bilingual staff are available 24/7 and will be able to assist you with a complaint or claim.
