prices of taxi rides in Brazil

June 7, 2010 | By More

There are at least three websites informing the approximate cost of taxi rides in Brazil. While each one of them presents approximate prices, they are handy tools to help you have an idea how how much a taxi ride will set you back. The three pages make use of Google Maps and as well as the fares they provide itinerary information.

At our blog post taxis we gave an overall view of how taxis work in Brazil and explained the difference between Bandeira 1 and Bandeira 2.

Comparison

We ran a fare comparison throughout the 3 engines.

1. Rio de Janeiro. We simulated a ride from Avenida Atlântica, 1000 (Copacabana) to Estrada do Corcovado, 1 (on the way up to the Corcovado mountain).

Fare class / Taxi.com.br / Calculador de Tarifa de Taxi / Taxímetro online
Bandeira 1 / R$ 22,35 / R$ 24,03 / R$20,50
Bandeira 2 / R$ 25,95 / R$ 27,98 / R$23,74

2. São Paulo. We simulated a ride from Avenida Paulista, 100 to Avenida Vital Brasil, 1500 (Instituto Butantan).

Fare class / Taxi.com.br / Calculador de Tarifa de Taxi / Taxímetro online
Bandeira 1 / R$ 21,61 / R$21,19 / R$21,19
Bandeira 2 / R$ 28,09 / R$26,50 / R$26,49

It is important to understand that the three search engines only show estimates. These estimates don’t include variables such as the time spent on the ride, which can considerably increase the cost. For that reason, a higher value than the one shown on any of the engines doesn’t necessarily imply the taxi driver is trying to cheat on you. Take those values as a rough minimum estimate.
