Taxi in Lyon

Lyon’s taxis are very well known, the main body of the passenger transport business. Often taxi and private driverr services are confused by travellers. However, the two services are quite distinct and specific. As far as taxis are concerned, travellers from all over the world are used to raising their hand when leaving a station, airport or on the side of the road in order to call a taxi. The price of the journey is calculated according to the time and distance travelled.

In recent years, the passenger transport service market has evolved and new services have been added to the existing taxi offer. Private drivers operate mostly on advance booking, i.e. when a passenger books his transport, his price is known in advance and fixed. In order to take the digital turn, some taxis have also adopted the operation of reservation with a fixed price.
