Taxi Travel

Taxis work under three different tariff schemes. Tariff 1 is for the city center 6 am–9 pm; meters start at €2.40. There is a fixed taxi fare of €30 to or from the airport from the city center. Supplements include €3 to or from bus and train stations. Tariff 2 is for the city center 9 pm–6 am (6 am–10 pm in the suburbs); the meter runs faster and charges more per kilometer. Tariff 3 runs at night beyond the city limits. All tariffs are listed on taxi windows. Besides reserving a taxi by phone, you can also do it through phone apps such as Hailo or MyTaxi, which work with local official taxi drivers. As of mid-2015, companies such as Uber or Lyft don't operate in Spain due to legal restrictions.
