Taxi Rates

I live in a colonia high on the hill and in the infrequent times I do take a cab mostly from El Centro to go uphill after taking a combi to get to El Centro, I have been asking what the fare was BEFORE getting in the cab for more than 4 years, only once did I fail at this approach when the taxi which quoted me a price at 11:50 pm arrived at my house at 12;05 am, the driver announced the fare just went up by 30% since it was after midnight(already paying 70 pesos) I threw his 70 pesos on the ground and told him to deal with it. I saw the same driver a year later and passed on his cab. This was a rare occurrence for me.

For me the bigger issue will be the alleged recent refusal of cabs to pick up clients who exit the airport area to avoid the airport taxi mafia.
