Local transport

There are around 3000 cabs in Cluj-Napoca; you can recognize them by the signs on the side doors and on the top. There are about 5 major cab companies: Nova Taxi, Taxi Napoca, Pro rapid, Diesel, Pritax, etc. Their cars are all equipped with taximeters and have about the same prices, posted in a visible place outside (under the lateral mirrors) and inside. You are charged 1.79 LEI for departure, 1.79 LEI/kilometer and 1.79 LEI/minute of idle time during daytime and 2.50 LEI/minute during the night or 17.00 LEI/hour. You will also be given a receipt.

There are some unregistered taxis, operating especially around the railway station and the airport. Try to avoid them, as they will charge you even three times the normal price.
