City of Los Angeles Taxi Service
There are nine franchise taxi operators in the City of Los Angeles who operate more than 2300 taxis. Be sure before boarding any taxi in the city of Los Angeles that you look for the official City of Los Angeles Taxicab Seal. Taxicabs bearing this seal are insured, have trained drivers and are regularly inspected by the City of Los Angeles. Any cab without the seal is a bandit cab with no legal authorization to operate in the City.
