Taxi

Barcelona has a service of 10,000 taxis which can be easily identified by their yellow and black livery. The taxi fleet has an increasing number of hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as cabs running on natural gas. The entire fleet of the Taxi Ecològic business is made up of silent hybrid and electric vehicles.
Taxis are available for hire if the green light on their roof is lit. You can take a taxi from any of the 300 taxi ranks (including those at railway stations, the airport, bus stations and cruise terminals), book one by phoning any of the taxi firms, via the free app, or by flagging one down in the street. For specific services (languages, seven-seater vehicles…) we recommend you contact the taxi firm by phone.

Adapted taxis
People with reduced mobility can book an adapted taxi. These vehicles provide the same service as any other taxi. They are metered and the fares are the same as all other taxis. Here is a list of adapted taxi firms. All the city's taxis are obliged to carry guide dogs at no extra charge.

Taxi fares in Barcelona
Barcelona taxis apply supplementary charges at railway stations and cruise terminals, as well as for carrying special equipment and late-night call-outs.
