There are 2 types of taxis in Mexico... normal taxis and tourist taxis, the tourist ones tend to be larger US or Jap cars that are stood at ranks, more expensive but more comfortable and you are less likely to be robbed or murdered and the normal ones are the white and green ones that you hail, are cheaper and you run the risk of all sorts. We were told never to get in one without number plates or a license in the window... the plates meant the driver was licensed and insured, the license in the window meant that they weren't properly licensed yet but it was 'in the post'... unfortunately the only one we found out in the suburbs had neither plates or a license in the window :lol:

There was a Beetle done up like a Mexican taxi at a few shows this year... I'd check Julian Robinson's show pics to have a look...

Thats one reason, the other is that Mexico City is banning all cars older than 10 years old by 2012, for environmental reasons according to the news feeds... as the last Beetle rolled off the production line in 2003, they will all be over 10 years old then, most are well over 10 years old already.

The feeds say that Mexico City has 100,000 taxis, 80,000 of which are Beetles. The local government are offering taxi drivers something like $1500 each to scrap their Beetles :eek: By all accounts most are taking the money, but some say they will drive them until 2012 and then sell them privately as the Beetles will still sell for $2500 when over 10 years old.

Better get your wallets out now if you fancy a genuine Mexican Beetle taxi!
