Taxis are readily available throughout the city, though can be hard to spot, as all of them are not yellow. The only indication is the taxi sign on top of the car.
All taxis use meters in addition to the base fare, and bargaining is not expected.
Taxis can be ordered by phone as well. You need to provide a specific pickup address - so if you are already on the road, you need to stand near a particular building and give its address. The four major companies are:
Taxi Champlain (Telephone: 514-273-2435)
Taxi Co-op (Telephone: 514-725-9885)
Taxi Diamond (Telephone: 514-273-6331)
Taxi Hochelaga (Telephone: 514-256-9033)
A tip of 10-15% is customary, and appreciated
