By Taxi

There are many different coloured taxis operating in Ningbo. With the possible exception of the red taxis, most are reasonable and clean. For most travel within the city the taxi fare should cost around 8 to 10 yuan (RMB). Generally speaking, taxis are very convenient so long as you are able to tell the driver where you wish to go. With oil prices causing headaches around the world, there is now a 1 RMB surcharge with the 8 RMB flagfall.


There are also blue taxi trucks available for carrying luggage or large purchases. Flag fall for these is 12 yuan (rmb). They will also pick up  passengers without luggage, but try to negotiate the price down if you aren’t carrying anything large. Sometimes the blue trucks are a godsend, particularly in wet weather when the extra charge is more than worthwhile.
