Cyprus Taxis
There are 2 types of taxi services in Cyprus.
The private taxi that we all know about, taxis you can flag down in a street or call up to have them pick you up from your home or hotel and take you anywhere you wish.
In Cyprus there are also line taxis or shared taxis that run, on a regular pre arranged schedule during the day, between the main areas and towns.
These are a lot less expensive than private taxis. Services run daily from around 7.00 am till about 6.00 pm at approximately a half hourly basis. There are no shared taxis running from either Larnaca or Paphos airports, even though there are some services to Larnaca and Paphos airports.
With Cyprus shared taxis, basically you call to book space on the shared taxi, they will then pick you up from your place and drop you off anywhere within the town limits of your destination town.
As an idea of cost for a shared taxi, this is around 4 to 6 Pounds per person depending on your journey
You may call the Cyprus Interurban Taxi Co Ltd - TRAVEL EXPRESS
