How to get a Taxi in Mumbai

There are more than 58,000 taxis in Mumbai. For many years, Premier Padminis, the famous Khaali Peeli cabs, have been the only taxis operating in Mumbai. The black and yellow Fiat vehicles are a pop icon nowadays and have even been depicted in different Bollywood movies. Sadly, they are increasingly becoming obsolete due to the government’s anti-pollution measures and replaced by modern vehicles such as Hyundai Santros.

It is very easy to get a taxi in this city, as you can hail one on the street or walk to the nearest taxi stand. Drivers can be found parked in front of major landmarks such as the Marine Drive, the Gateway of India and other points of interest.

We recommend downloading a taxi app as it is safer and more comfortable than hailing a car in the street. A very reliable cab app is Meru. Another option is asking your hotel reception to call a local taxi company. Mumbai taxi booking is very easy and hassle-free.

Benefits of Booking a Mumbai Taxi in Advance

Pre-booking an airport taxi is a cost and time-efficient way to arrive at your destination in Mumbai. This wonderful cultural metropolis never sleeps. There is an endless list of things to do and places to go, so why waste time trying to find your way around with public transportation? With Welcome, you can feel safe knowing that a driver will be there to pick you up from the airport and escort you to your hotel for the check-in. There is nothing better after a long flight than relaxing in your own private air-conditioned cab. So sit back and relax and let us take care of the rest.

Mumbai Taxi Tips

  1. Keep your bags in boot compartment or along with you as it is safer that way.
  2. Make sure you ask the driver to turn the taximetre on when entering the taxi.
  3. Locals do not tip taxi drivers, so tips are not expected. If your taxi driver was exceptional, consider leaving about Rs 20 (equivalent of €0.24)

Wheelchair Accessible Taxis in Mumbai

Mumbai on the whole is not a very accessible city. There are often huge crowds of people in front of every major landmark which makes transportation difficult. So it would be a good idea to book a wheelchair accessible vehicle in advance, that is before you visit the city. You can reach Meru to book their service for wheelchair users, Meru Enable.

Safety and Complaints for Mumbai Taxis

Mumbai taxis are generally very safe, with nice, clean vehicles and polite drivers. However, there have been reports in the past of drivers trying to scam foreigners and charge them more than usual. If you suspect something similar has happened to you, get out of the taxi immediately, note down the license plate and head to the nearest police station to make a complaint. You can also call the local police at +91-22-29272485,+91-22- 29272484.
