Choose Licensed Taxis

Wait in Well-Lit Areas
While waiting for your taxi, choose well-lit and busy areas. These locations deter potential wrongdoers and provide a safe environment while you wait.

Verify the Driver
Prior to entering the taxi, confirm the driver’s identity. Ask the driver for their name and cross-check it with the name displayed on their taxi license. At Drive Taxis,  drivers are more than willing to provide this information to ensure your peace of mind.

Travel with Friends
Whenever possible, travel with friends or in a group. Not only is it more enjoyable to share your adventures, but it also enhances safety.
