Online Guide for Newcomers to Prince Edward Island, Canada


Taxis or 'cabs' are fairly inexpensive and quite popular in PEI. Taxis here usually charge based on the distance travelled and the number of persons in the cab. They usually do not use meters like in larger cities.

When calling for a taxi, give the dispatcher your address and the address where you are going, and one will usually come and pick you up within ten to fifteen minutes.

To find a local taxi company, look in the Yellow Pages under 'Taxis'. [See Related Resources]

Some places like hospitals, hotels and shopping malls have free phones to call for taxis. They are usually located near the public pay phones.
