In order to make a forecast about the estimated taxi price in Zurich, we use the current taxi tariff Zurich. This was last fixed in January 2015. The Zurich taxi tariff consists of a basic charge, various kilometer prices and a time-dependent component for standing and waiting times. Based on the entered start and destination address, we first determine the shortest taxi distance between these two points. We use the resulting distance and estimated driving time to calculate an estimated value for your forthcoming taxi journey in Zurich with the taxi tariff valid today. Of course, the start and destination addresses do not necessarily have to be in Zurich. We will automatically find the right fare.
In Switzerland, maximum taxi rates are set by the authorities of towns, municipalities or cantons. The taxi tariff Zurich was last set in January 2015 and published in the official tariff ordinance. It is binding as the maximum rate for all taxis and taxi companies within the compulsory driving area and may not be exceeded. This is ensured by calibrated taximeters installed in the taxis. Lower tariffs are possible.
