You will find that plenty of taxis are readily available in the Cayman Islands.
The Cayman Islands Government owned digital fare calculator CI:GO helps ensure consistent and transparent pricing for taxi fares by setting standard prices for routes. The app allows passengers to plug in their route, the number of passengers and see what the fare should cost in both US and Caymanian dollars. It also allows users to input the number of passengers and how many pieces of luggage a visitor has. There is also a sliding scale of price increases for journeys of five passengers or more. The CI:GO app is available for free in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
Sample fares for up to three passengers are:
Airport – Central George Town CI$15
Airport – Marriott Hotel & Resort CI$20
Airport – Bodden Town CI$46
Airport - East End (Morritt's Resort) CI$104

New to the Cayman market is Flex – an Uber-style app that allows users to request a ride at any time and day of the year. Flex offers reliable pickups, fee splitting and GPS tracking which allows users to see their journey and make sure they are travelling the best possible route. Every ride is GPS tracked and connects the user to the nearest registered driver which reduces wait time.
The Flex app can be used to request rides, input pick up and drop off locations, choose the vehicle you want and rate your driver and experience. The Flex User app is available to download for free on Apple and Android. Flex also offers 24/7 monitored support.
The Purple Ribbon Bus is a free bus service in Cayman that is designed to prevent drinking and driving over the holiday season.
The buses will be displaying flashing purple lights and purple exterior reflective signs. Although the buses have designated pick up locations, the buses will also pick up passengers at all major restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and bus stops.
For more information on the 2022 service, keep checking the NDA’s Facebook page where details will be posted in due course.
