Traffic can get quite congested on the roads in Auckland but since public transportation isn’t as expansive and frequent as some other cities, tourist and locals are forced to use the reliable taxi services. Rates for taxi services range are decent. Taxis can be flagged down, ordered by phone, or picked up at taxi stands. For further information, call Auckland Taxi Co-Op (tel. 09/300-3000) or Corporate Cabs (tel. 09/631-1111).
Warning: There is a surcharge for transport to and from the airport and cruise ships.
