How it works:
- Situation: in Bogota, a confusing tariff/pay band system (laminated sheet is provided) is used to determine the final fare.
- Set-up: as such, some drivers take a longer route to push the pay bands up. This is more likely to happen on Sundays as there is less demand and tariffs are higher.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- Be very clear when communicating your destination. Check your phone’s GPS to see if you are headed in the correct direction, though detours may be taken to avoid jams.
- You can also research a fair price to use as an indicator – check the Calculadora de Tarifas app, your hotel/hostel staff or taxi booking apps (e.g. Tappsi, Cabify or Uber).
