Taxi Service in Shanghai
Taking a taxi is a fast and convenient choice of transport for travelling around Shanghai. There are more than 50,000 taxis in Shanghai. The taxi’s registration plate number and the company’s customer service phone numbers are clearly displayed in the cars.
Formal taxis can be easily identified by the logo that lights up on the top of the car. One of the unique features of taxis in Shanghai is the transparent shield that is beside the driver’s seat, which serves as a protection from some attacks.
Taxis are in short supply during peak periods, rainy days and public holidays. Passengers are advised to accordingly plan their journey during these circumstances to allow for longer waiting times.
