There are no services like 'Uber' here, nor Yandex.Go or Gett. The reasons are the low traffic, expensive licenses, and the locals' reluctance to work according to aggregator standards.

However, there are enough options to travel from point A to point B in Northern Cyprus. Taxi drivers mostly work independently, occasionally forming groups of 5-6 cars to avoid canceling multiple orders.

The profession of a taxi driver on the island is often passed down through generations, and low car loan rates for citizens allow them to maintain a fleet of premium brands. Therefore, rest assured that when you call a taxi, you will get at least a 'Mercedes' E-class car.

Websites of taxi companies have appeared recently, but usually, every taxi driver will gladly give you a business card. Almost all taxi drivers speak English well, and some even speak Russian. However, to guarantee a Russian-speaking driver, we recommend looking for offers in the 'Taxi' section of the largest Russian-speaking Telegram channel in Northern Cyprus, here.
