Taxi Travel

To get to neighborhoods away from downtown, such as Pampulha, taking a bus or a taxi is advisable. When taking taxis, aim for taxi stands or hotels, where taxis can often be found. Most taxis in Belo Horizonte are white (taxi comum); there are also special black taxis that can be hailed or called. Both are metered. The meter starts at about R$4; with about R$2.30 added for every kilometer traveled (slightly higher at night and on weekends).
