Tainan City English Tourism Taxi Service

Taxi Service

In Tainan, you'll see taxies queuing at the main transportation spots such as train stations and the high-speed rail station, and the entrances of department stores and hotels. When the light on the cab's roof is lit up, it shows that the cab is ready to take new passengers. In the downtown area, you can hail a taxi on the curb as long as you see an available one by raising your hand. The taxi will pull over and let you get in.

You can also arrange a taxi service at the location you specify by making a domestic call to a Taiwanese taxi company. Not all of the taxi companies in Taiwan are able to communicate with their customers in English, most of Taiwanese taxi drivers are not able to speak in fluent English either. An alternative is to ask your hotel or Taiwanese friends to write down the address you are going to in Chinese for you and show it to the taxi driver. In most circumstances you can simply count on your Taiwanese drivers to take you to the destinations. Having a map in both Chinese and English by hand is helpful too.
