How Can I Find a Paris Taxi?

To find a taxi in the city of Paris, go to the Taxi stand with the blue sign. Once in a while you can flag down a cab. Reserve a taxi in Paris with the phone, the Web or an app on your phone or tablet.

Need to be picked up, dropped off? Where are you going? How many are traveling? What day of the week is it? What’s the weather like? These questions could determine the taxi tariff.

Carol and three others used Taxis G7 to travel from their Marais apartment to Gare Montparnasse.
They called the phone number for Taxis G7 and reserved in English. The taxi driver was on time, courteous and they were happy.
