Taxis Palmerston North

Who we are

Proudly driving the Palmerston North Community.

We are Palmerston North’s oldest and most community orientated passenger transport provider.

We have revitalised our image to represent the vibrant energy of our young city and our dedication to our community. At the centre of our new image is our logo. It is a representation of Palmerston North’s iconic clock tower, which stands tall in the centre of our city and lights our way each evening.

This landmark is a symbol of time. Of our past, our present and our future. As our logo it is a symbol of our taxi company’s and of our driver’s commitment to Palmerston North, and how we as a united community can move forward into the future. This is why our taxi company will be working with the local council and charities that they support. The colours that light up the tower are used to recognise these charities and are reflected in our logo. The clock is also a symbol of our dedication to working with our customers to improve the services and response we provide to them time and time again.

Our company is currently comprised of 63 vehicles, including 5 Total Mobility (Wheelchair accessible) and 4 passenger vans. We have developed and changed with the growing population of Palmerston North and Manawatu, moving along with and, at times, pioneering new technology enabling more efficient service to our customers. We offer an advanced data dispatch system, GPS tracking, eftpos in every vehicle, and a premium local call centre manned 24/7 to ensure you are always able to get a taxi when you need one.

Palmerston North Taxis is the leader in the field offering a first class service at reasonable rates. Proudly serving the Palmerston North Community for 50 years, Taxis Palmerston North’s origins and ties to Palmerston North go back nearly a century, back to the days of the horse-drawn Hansom Cabs.

The taxi industry in Palmerston North has presented many challenges over the years from competing with each other, the Government Inquiries, regulation, deregulation, mergers, restructures and fleet modernisation. Taxis Palmerston North arose out of this instability and offers a proud record of service and reliability.
