Beijing's streets are dotted with red Fukangs, green Xiandais and other cabs. Most taxi operators are ventures between Chinese and foreign companies. Taxis are not as efficient a means of transport because of the frequent traffic jams. Make sure you take a metered taxi to avoid later arguments with the taxi driver. Rates vary depending on the time of the day [rates are significantly higher during rush hours] and the distance travelled.

Price: Y 10 [3km or less] + Y 2 for each km travelled after
