We deliver an efficient, reliable,
safe and value-for-money service.

Our coverage now includes Pinelands

We currently operate a fleet of 50 meter taxis. Our vehicles are the latest models, of a good standard and are serviced regularly. All our vehicles are equipped with a taxi meter calibrated on R9 per kilometre. Our tariff is the lowest in Cape Town and we offer a 24-hour service.

Our cars are controlled from a central control room so we know where every vehicle is located at any given time. Satellite tracking in our vehicles monitors the taxis' status as well as the safety of our clients.

Excite Taxis have been operating meter cabs since 1994.
We have excellent relations with hotels, guest houses, restaurants and clubs.

We are very selective when contracting drivers and for that reason the average age of our drivers is 45 years. It is important for us to have responsible people that are well trained and informative for our clients. Our drivers are always well dressed with a tie and white shirt.

All our vehicles are insured for passenger liability.


Excite Taxis operate from our office situated at 289 Lower Main, Observatory

c. Only trips between points outside our operating area should be quoted. Such quoted price should be measured from our office/base to the client’s destination. E.g.
