Have you ever stood in the middle of a Paris street and tried to get a taxi but got too confused by the coded lighting system on the hood? Well those days are over. Paris taxis are now obligated to install a newer, simpler system. And it couldn’t be easier. Big red light on the roof and the taxi is occupied or reserved, big green light and the taxi is available to whisk you away to tea at Ladurée. And you may have noticed that Paris taxis are more and more often black. So not only are Paris taxis becoming easier to hail, but they are also becoming more chic!
