SHANGHAI TRAFFIC AND MAP


 

 

TAXI


Taxis are the fastest means of transportation, traffic permitting. Finding a taxi in the busy streets of the city is easy in most cases. However, during the rush hours finding one could be difficult, in which case you may want to take the metro.

Although most of the drivers are familiar with the city, being as specific as possible with directions will speed up your journey and make it cheaper. Normally, quoting the street name of the intersecting street would be preferred.

Charge:

Payment:

Tipping is not expected. Cash and transportation card are the only means for payment. When giving the address of your destination, it would be better if it is in Chinese as most drivers can speak very little English.

Receipt:

Upon leaving, ask for a receipt (发票 fa1 piao4), which shows the taxi number and the company’s telephone number. It is very useful if you leave something behind in the cab or you have a complaint.
