Watch out for unlicensed taxis, which can be overpriced at best, and dangerous at worst. Licensed taxis in Brussels are black with a line of yellow squares along the side.
The city also runs a shared taxi service called Collecto that runs from 11.00 to 6.00 and costs €5-€6 per person. Book by calling 02.800.36.36, and go to the pick-up point at one of 200 STIB/MIVB stops.
Uber still operates in Brussels, but its cheap and cheerful UberPOP option was declared illegal following a court order in September 2015.
