As one of the busiest cities on Grenada, Saint George's is rife with taxis and hailing one on the street is rarely an issue.
Although you won't see the yellow taxi cabs of movies on the street, you won't have trouble telling them apart from regular vehicles thanks to the name of the cab company blasted all over the vehicle, plus the letter “H” at the beginning of the tag number on the license plate. Some taxis are sedans, while others are larger minivans to carry more people at once. If for some reason a taxi is unattainable, you can call one of the companies below to arrange pick up.
