Tips for Taxi use:

  • Always make note of the company name and taxi number of the cab you are using. An easy way to do this is snap a photo with your phone. In the event you've left a personal item in the car, or experience a service issue you will have the information handy.
  • We recommend using only authorized taxi companies for City of Atlanta, please refer to this list.
  • If paying by credit card, verify the taxi can accept this form of payment before entering the vehicle. Please note, many Atlanta taxi drivers are independent operators and do not have the ability to accept credit cards.
  • Ask your hotel bell/valet staff for assistance hailing a cab, and communicate your destination before entering the vehicle.
  • Not all of Atlanta's nightlife areas are frequented by taxi cabs. Always take the card/telephone number of the Cab that delivered you, and call ahead to schedule the return trip.
  • It IS permissible to hail a cab from the curb/street.
  • Understanding Zone Fare vs Metered Fare- Atlanta is unique from most cities, in that the most heavily trafficked areas are set on flat rate zone fares. This is why many times you will not see the driver start the meter. However, when traveling to a point outside of the zone, the driver will start the meter at the point of exiting the zone boundary, and the fare will be a total of the zone fare plus the additional metered distance to the destination.
