Such places are marked with blue signs with the inscription Taxi, and they are usually located near railway stations, large shopping centers, and other crowded areas. You can also book a taxi by phone. In this case, keep in mind that you will have to pay not only for the trip but also for those kilometers that the car has traveled, getting to you. You also can hail a taxi, which means stop it on the street. If there are no passengers, a taxi in Santa Susanna has a green light or a flag with the inscription Libre on it. That means, you can easily get in.
Taxis in Santa Susanna are both state-owned and private. It is quite easy to distinguish a state-owned taxi: it should have checkers on its roof, a working taximeter inside, and the driver has to have a price list and a license.

Spanish drivers are usually welcoming and friendly to foreigners. If necessary, they can help you to load your luggage into the car and explain directions. Passenger compartments are clean, but it is more relevant for state-owned taxis.
