Bandit Taxi

If you don't see the seal on the exterior door of the taxicab, don't get in!

Taxicabs bearing this seal are insured, have trained drivers and are regularly inspected by the City of Los Angeles.

Some taxicab companies operating in the City without a City seal may be “bandit” taxicabs. With no legal authorization to operate in the City of Los Angeles, there is no restitution if you are overcharged or receive poor service, nor is there any guarantee of vehicle insurance.

The City of Los Angeles has worked hard to provide you with safe and reasonably priced transportation. We hope you enjoy yourself while visiting Los Angeles!
