Rio Transportation

Taxi

Rio Taxis focus on security and quality of attention. But you must be aware not to take unofficial taxis (called "pirate" taxis). It is very easy to identify the official ones, just check the following:

Red Plates (it should says "LICENÇA de veículo de ALUGUEL");
? Yearly Authorization Stamp ("Selo de Vistoria Anual");
? ID of the Driver

Special taxis are organised in coops and must be middle size vehicles. Each coop has its own standard car painting.
