The best way to get around the city is by cab. Registered taxis in Casablanca are colored red and known as petits taxis (small taxis), or coloured white and known as grands taxis (big taxis). As is standard Moroccan practice, petits taxis, typically small-four door Fiat Uno or similar cars, provide metered cab service in the central metropolitan areas.  The petit taxi can accommodate 3 passengers. These small cabs do not go to the airport.  A twenty percent surcharge is applicable at night.  Grands taxis,generally older Mercedes-Benz sedans, provide shared mini-bus like service within the city on pre-defined routes, or shared inter-city service. Grands Taxis may also be hired for private service by the hour or day, although typically only foreigners do so.
