Tips for taxi service in Mexico D.F. Aug 10, 2011
In the airport there is an area designated for taxis, make sure you go there to get a fair price and licensed taxi driver. Also, from my experience, if the road is empty sometimes, some drivers drive less safely. For example, I've seen drivers ignore traffic lights and drive way too fast. Thankfully I've never been in a crash. Also when your picking up a taxi from anywhere in the D.F. I advise you to call a taxi service. There are sometimes people who pose as taxi drivers and overcharge and I've heard kidnap people, I don't know anyone who's been kidnapped but I've heard that it does happen. Other general tips

1) Don't go out at night much, it's gotten more dangerous these past couple of years. So much that some taxi driver's don't drive at night.

2) Ask your driver if he knows how to get to the place your going to. Sometimes they don't know and can get lost, it's happened to me and my uncle had to guide him and one time we had to get out and find another driver.

3) If your carrying a lot of luggage get a larger taxi or hatchback because in the city there are these LARGE bumps that can sometimes scrape the bottom of the taxi with too much luggage and be a problem. If you do have a lot of luggage you can also get two regular taxis and have one follow the other to your hotel. I've done this before and has gone good for me.

Otherwise just use your own judgement. If the driver seems a little shady or you just don't feel right hopping in then just wait for another because there are a ton of them
