However, the use of public taxis to and from Bergamo airport is one of the least economical modes of transfer: in fact, from any point in the city to the airport, it is necessary to calculate the fare with the meter, which actually starts counting from the moment it is taken, and the fare varies according to travel time, traffic and time of day (also note that the night fare is higher).
