Taxi in San Francisco?

I am traveling to San Francisco this month and my hotel is somewhere in Japantown. If i take the Bart to Civic Center or Powell St., are there going to be taxi stands, or just taxi at the stations? Also do you just wave your hand to get a taxi in San Francisco or do you have to call the taxi company for a taxi?...

Taxis are REALLY, REALLY expensive. Public trans is pretty good. A bus from the Airport goes to the Hilton downtown, just off of Powell Street, so there will be taxis there. The main street bisecting Japantown is Geary...the only street in The City (note the Capital Letters...that's how people say it!!) that goes all the from the Bay to the Ocean without a blockage, circle, turnaround or name-change. Enjoy your stay, although you should include a sweater, raincoat, umbrella and be ready for rain and fog..

Flagging a cab is difficult in SF, as they don't cruise the streets as much as they do in other large cities. However, there will probably be more driving around the Powell Street station.

Also, they tend to cruise around the major hotels. You might try getting off at Montgomery and walking a block down 3rd Street to the Westin.

However, if you're flying in, it would be cheaper ($18), faster and more convenient to just take a shuttle such as Super Shuttle directly from the airport to your destination.
