In the Turks and Caicos, there are three types of transport that could be loosely defined as a “taxi”, with available services ranging from Uber-like ride hailing, conventional taxi vans, and private car services.

Ride Hailing

Uber and Lyft are not yet available in the Turks and Caicos, yet the new Conch Cab service is quite similar to Uber Pool, and rides can be easily hailed via a web app. Fares are upfront and can be seen prior to booking, and live driver location information is shown. At this time, Conch Cab is only available on the main tourism island of Providenciales.

Conch Cabs can also be hailed on the street, and their white sedans are very easy to spot due to the giant decorative conchs on the cab roofs!

Conch Cab fares are charged per person, with $5 rates for most of Grace Bay and the Bight, and $7 rates for more distant parts of the island.

Unfortunately, Conch Cab is not available for airport transfers.

Private Car Service

Luxury private car service in the Turks and Caicos.

Private car services are a popular and more luxurious way of getting around, and typically operate upscale and newer SUVs, such as the Chevrolet Suburban, Cadillac Escalade, Lincoln Navigator, Land Rover Range Rover, GMC Yukon, or the Toyota Sequoia.

Airport Transfers

Although they may initially appear expensive, a private car service can actually be a decent value in many situations due to the fact that their fares are per car, and not per person like most conventional taxis. For groups of 4-6, it may actually be less expensive for the car service. This is especially the case for transfers from the Providenciales International Airport (PLS).

Another consideration is wait times. Taxis trips originating from the airport are typically shared, and there may be a wait before departing. A luxury car service is private, and drivers will meet guests directly outside of the arrivals gate for speedy departure, which saves time.

Taxis

What’s most commonly referred to as a taxi in the Turks and Caicos is typically a large passenger van, with rates that are usually charged per-person. Rides may be shared, especially for journeys originating at the Providenciales International Airport (PLS).

Taxi service is available on Providenciales, Grand Turk, and North and Middle Caicos. Rates are considered by most to be quite expensive, and for two persons travelling from the Providenciales airport to a resort in Grace Bay, the charge should be around $30, yet drivers may demand more.

Taxis are typically large passenger vans, such as the Ford E-Series or Chevrolet Express vans, which are capable of seating anywhere from 9-15 people.

The Turks and Caicos Government sets fare limits for most taxi journeys. Sometimes, these limits are exceeded, so it’s best to confirm with your taxi what the total will be for your journey (including all passengers) before departing.

Taxi Queues

Taxis may be scheduled in advance for a specific location, or can often be found waiting in queues at some specific locations throughout the Turks and Caicos.

On Providenciales, taxis can usually be found waiting at the Providenciales International Airport, at some resorts, and at the Graceway Gourmet and Graceway IGA supermarkets.

On Grand Turk, some taxis are usually waiting at the Grand Turk JAGS McCartney International Airport (GDT) and at the Grand Turk Cruise Center.

For North Caicos, there may be a limited number of taxis at the Sandy Point Marina, where the North Caicos Ferry lands.
