Features of the Canadian taxi

Dial a number, you have specified the address and phone number, called back and reported that the car drove up. And here in Canada, so taxis do not cause. Dial a number, reported the address at which to call a taxi and ran to descend. Because the car drove a taxi will be waiting for you for a long time. Wait 2-3 minutes and leave. The fact that a taxi waiting for you, no one will not disclose.
The competition among taxi drivers is very small,because licenses are very expensive, so let them alone can not everyone. The market is divided into a taxi for a long time, "trade unions" vigilantly monitor that private cab drivers are not squeezed into this niche occupied.
Outside the area of the city to catch a taxi almostit is impossible, therefore, to record several phone numbers, which will be available in case of need to call a taxi: +1 613 238 1111; +1 613 727 0101

The fare in the taxi made over the counter. Plus, every taxi driver waits for customers on a good tip, which does not necessarily give. Not every driver is ready to provide you the opportunity to pay the fare by credit card. Before you call a car, make sure that you will be able to carry out cashless payments in case of need. For landing in a taxi to take you around $ 4. And then you will be paying about 25 cents per 150 meters of track. By the way, the prices Canadians constant. Therefore, regardless of the day of the week or time of day, pay the fare will not change.
