 Taxi fares and info - Cape Town

Finding a taxi in Cape Town

Cape Town has two sorts of taxis; Metered taxis and Minibus taxis. The metered taxis are under control of the city, and all use the taxameter. The minibus taxis are not regulated, and also accept customers going for different destinations, more like a shuttle service.

If you're a tourist or newcomer to Cape Town and don't know your way around, you are advised to only use the metered taxis. Although these are more expensive, they are safer and will take you directly to your destination.

As metered taxis in Cape Town aren't allowed to stop for customers on the streets, they have to be ordered in advance, or picked up by a hotel or a taxi rank. Find contact information below. Some, but certainly not all, taxi drivers speak English.
