Travel by Taxi

If you want to get around Gothenburg in a taxi, there are several options available to you: call and book your taxi, hail one on the street, or get one at one of the designated taxi stands around the city. Licensed taxis always carry yellow license plates.

Important: Taxi fares are not regulated in Sweden. This means that fares can vary greatly between operators. It is your responsibility to check the fare beforehand. You can do so by checking the yellow and white label on the rear door window of the taxicab. The highest fare for a ride is typically between 290 and 390 Swedish Krona (SEK).

The fare indicated on the yellow label is based on a 10-km, 15-minute taxi ride.
