The official vehicles of the taxi service in Rome are colored white with a taxi led top light display. The Rome city council’s symbol as well as the taxi licence number are both clearly displayed on the car front doors and inside the vehicle (rear doors left).
Once on board make sure the taximeter (usually placed on the front window) is on, if not ask the driver to switch it on immediately. Always ask for the taxi receipt.
When possible, take the taxi directly from a taxi parking area or call it by phone; through radiotaxi you can book the transfer to airports, train stations and hospitals. A supplementary cost for the call will be charged.
The Rome city council’s number to call a taxi is +39 060609: a service is available in the 65 taxi ranks in operation (at least one per Municipal area). It should be noted that this service does not replace the radio-controlled taxi services, which will continue to operate with their own numbers, but is rather an addition to the pre-existing service.
HOW DOES IT WORK
060609 Call a taxi operates through a voice recognition system that recognizes street names. Once you have dialled the number (+39 060609), just follow the instructions: clearly indicate the pick up address and the system will redirect the call to the nearest taxi rank, where a taxi driver will answer your call.
A new "Chiamataxi" service started on 4 February 2013: an app available for smartphones and tablets (powered by IM.Taxi), if your call is not answered by one of the taxi ranks located in the various areas of the city, it will be answered to the nearest taxi driver, who will be able to estimate the time of arrival through the road maps loaded on the system. The service, which is available from 4 February, is free of charge until 30 April 2013. Within this lapse of time you will be able to rescind the contract. From 1 May 2013 the service is with fee (€ 15.00 + VAT per month) with a contract duration of one year.
