Expensive Taxis


Edinburgh taxi fares are among the highest in the world, according to a recent survey. At a cost of £7 for a 3 mile (about 5km) journey, Edinburgh comes in in 5th place in a ranking of the most expensive cities for taxi rides. Only Oslo, Geneva, Osaka and London were more expensive.

The article quotes Oslo as charging £11.20 for 3 miles.
Last year in Bergen a 1.8km journey cost us 200 NKr, almost £20!

The price of a taxis might make parking reasonable. I agree with Kris and Annie that walking should be the top alternative when practical.
