- Taxis: there are two types of taxi service: small taxis (petits taxis) with meters are licensed to operate within city limits. They can be hailed individually or shared with other riders; large taxis (grands taxis), usually Mercedes Benz roadsters or Renault Dacia-Lodgys, are used for suburban runs and inter-city transportation. Most often shared, routes have fixed prices per rider. Large taxis can also be rented for particular runs, but the price must be agreed beforehand, as they do not run-on meters.
