Getting around Cork
Cork is well served by an efficient taxi service provided by numerous companies (see link for companies and phone numbers)
There are two types: taxis that have yellow signs on the roof and identifying stickers on the doors and hackneys which are largerly unmarked in comparison. Only taxis can queue in designated taxi ranks, use bus lanes and be hailed. Hackney journeys must be arranged in advance through a hackney company and the fare should be agreed in advance. All taxis have meters.
