THE ISLAND TAXI TEAM
Island Taxis was started in 2008 and is the longest running taxi business on Waiheke Island. After growing steadily over the last 8 years Island Taxis is now the largest locally owned and operated company on Waiheke Island with a large selection of vehicles to meet every need. We work closely with Waiheke Executive Taxis and share a dispatch system; this gives us the ability to say YES! more often. We also have access to a whole fleet of buses that we can also use to help you to get around Waiheke Island.
Our team includes Richard Cannon, known as Kippa to his friends and fellow musicians, has 15 years of history living on Waiheke. Kippa is a world famous on Waiheke musician with extensive knowledge of what is happening musically/live entertainment on the Island at any given time. We have an eclectic team of drivers with backgrounds ranging from secret agents to ballet-dancers; what they don’t know about the island they know where to find out. A few years ago Metro Magazine voted our drivers as being the friendliest you will find on the island; each one of them works hard to enhance the passenger experience.
We are also backed up by a group of part time drivers who help out as demand increases in the summer time. The Team is also complimented by Hayley, Louisa and Karen our lovely Dispatchers.
Every one of our taxis is tracked using GPS, every one of our jobs is dispatched using the latest technology. From the moment you make your booking with us, to the end of your journey, we know exactly where you are and what goes on in the taxi. Your safety is of paramount importance to us.
So come and enjoy our beautiful Island and all it has to offer with a range of world class Vineyards, Restaurants and Beaches, with the team at Island Taxis.
