Taxis are a popular transportation choice for visitors to St. Croix. While there isn’t a standard type of taxi vehicle, the most popular are vans, open air safaris (converted trucks; truck beds are customized with bench seating in an open-air covered area) and SUVs/cars. Taxis on St. Croix are not metered; rates are per person and per destination and are set by the VI Taxicab Division. Taxi Rate Sheets are provided below.

Taxi Tips

  • Taxis are almost always available at the cruise ship dock when ships are in port, at the airport, the Seaplane Terminal, at the taxi stand area in downtown Christiansted and usually at large hotels and popular restaurants/bars.
  • Licensed taxi vehicles are labeled with: a taxi placard or dome light on the roof, license plates that indicate Taxi status, On Duty/Off Duty sign in the window of the vehicle and a sign, usually on the fender, indicating passenger capacity. The drivers personal identification/taxi license should be on the vehicles dash board.
  • There are drivers that run “gypsy taxis” in their personal vehicles. They do not adhere to the rules of the taxi commission and are use at your own risk. They often hustle outside bars and grocery stores.
  • Although rates are standardized it is strongly recommended that you speak to the driver and agree to your total rate (for you, your group, your luggage, waiting, tour) before boarding the taxi.
  • See the Additional Taxi Charges Section after the rate sheets for sightseeing tour rates, luggage rates, private taxi rates and other information.
