cheap taxi in zurich area?

ok maybe not 'cheap' but at least not outrageously expensive?

maybe something has changed since the last it was discussed

Alpha Taxi wants 40 chf for 6 km ride (from Zurich Seebach to Zurich Airport)

Re: cheap taxi in zurich area?

Seems about right. From the city centre it's around CHF60. I don't know if there's an airport tax on top to be considered.

You could take the train, and the tram 10 goes directly.

Re: cheap taxi in zurich area?

Prices are fixed by the city government. You may consider the price level outrageous, but if you factor in all the expenses a taxi driver has - gas, various fees, car maintenance (now THAT's ridiculously expensive) - it really is not a lot. That said, you should talk to the driver. He might be willing to give you a better rate if you are a repeat customer.

Re: cheap taxi in zurich area?

Take the train or tram number ten. If you're concerned about how much luggage you have then you could still afford to pay those baggage guys at the airport to carry your bags for you. It will still be less than your 40chf taxi ride.
