Milan-registered operators of taxis Milan Malpensa Airport services are the only members of the “fixed-fare” community. All taxi operators with businesses registered outside of Milan city limits can charge per meter reading. These operators can be recognised quite easily, as they do not have a card displayed in their windows or by the driver’s seat.
All taxi drivers must pay the tolls due on various routes into and out of Milan, but when travelling in a non-fixed fare taxi passengers usually find their driver chooses a “scenic route” via a non-toll road, which is naturally more time-consuming and slower than a toll-levied motorway. Any toll charges levied on taxis Milan Malpensa Airport are included in the total fare and are always paid by the driver, never by the passenger directly.
