Taxi tips:


1. Taxis are always metered in the cities. When you get on a taxi in a city, please make sure that the driver puts down the flag on the meter when you get in, and be sure the meter has been reset to zero before he/she throws the flag.


2. When you take a taxi for a long trip (i.e. from PVG to Suzhou City), it is more economical to get a long distance package price by negotiating with the driver and thus there’s no need to meter any more.
