Electric taxi for a fixed price
As you’ve come to expect from us, rides in electric taxis are also competitively priced. Day or night, rain or shine, with Staxi you know precisely how much you’re paying for your zero-emission taxi ride. Fixed price, no surprise!
An electric vehicle is completely free of emission. That means that the car does not emit any CO2, NOx (nitrogen) or particulates. Research has shown that traffic in Amsterdam is the biggest culprit for poor air quality. And taxis are of course a big part of city traffic.
We have therefore set ourselves the goal of driving entirely emission-free by 2025. And we’re doing pretty well; almost half of all Staxi’s are electric!
Electric taxi Amsterdam
Did you know that electric taxis were around in Amsterdam as early as 1900? To be precise, the first zero-emission taxi ran in our capital in 1909. Ten years later, there were no less than 126 electric cars in the Netherlands, most of which served as taxis. But the batteries of those days were hefty and not efficient. Petrol and later diesel won out over the electric taxi of yesteryear.
From 2017 onwards, the electrically powered taxi started to make a comeback in Amsterdam. The number of electric taxis increased at record speed. In 2019, together with the municipality, we welcomed the 1000th electric taxi to the city. Today, you can easily book a ride in an electric vehicle via this page or with the Staxi App.

Frequently asked questions
You will get a fixed price when you pre-book a taxi with us. The exact fare depends on several things:
The distance of the ride
Of course, you will pay less for a shorter ride. However, our rate per kilometre decreases as the total distance increases. That is unique because most taxi companies offer a metered fare based on a fixed amount for each kilometre. As a result, you are off cheaper with Staxi than with other taxi companies.
The type of vehicle
A ride in a regular taxi is cheaper than a ride in a taxi van. When you pre-book your taxi with us, the cost difference between a minibus taxi and a sedan is smaller than when you flag down a cab on the street or get in at a taxi rank. In that case, the driver will charge the meter rate, which is more expensive than our fixed rates.
Supply and demand
Just like a plane ticket or a night in a hotel, the fare for the same trip can fluctuate depending on supply and demand. For example: in extreme weather conditions, such as heavy snow, the need for taxi transport increases rapidly, which makes the price rise. The same journey can also be a lot cheaper, for instance, travelling at a quiet time.
As such, Staxi works with peak and off-peak hours. Our software automatically adjusts the fares based on supply and demand. In quiet moments, you will travel even cheaper with Staxi.
That depends on the location where you want to be picked up. Usually, there is a minimum booking time of 60 minutes. In some areas, it is longer and in others shorter.
Tip: When you book a taxi with the Staxi App, you can see precisely where the driver is and what time he or she will arrive.
At Staxi, you can pay for your taxi in any way you like. Because we work with fixed prices, it is possible to pre-pay via your trusted payment environment, such as iDeal, Sofort or PayPal. Of course, you can also pay securely online with your credit card. Without extra costs!
