St. Augustine Taxis

Calling a local taxi or Uber during your stay in St. Augustine is ideal for a number of reasons. Instead of driving in circles for a parking place, a taxi can conveniently drop you off at your destination. You also pay a flat fee for a cab and don't have to worry about feeding the meter or watching the clock. After learning about St. Augustine's extensive history and visiting a few attractions, you may want to share a bottle of wine over a romantic dinner or join a pub-crawl tour. Driving your vehicle limits activity options, and if you are parked in a meter or pay station area, it also limits the amount of time you have. Taxis and Uber exist in St. Augustine but Lyft does not.
