Have you decided to leave your car on the mainland? Not a problem. Besides excellent public transport, Texel has taxis or you might decide to hire a car. We do recommend that you book in advance if you want to take a taxi from the ferry port to your destination on the island.
A number of taxi companies operate on Texel. They are usually available 24 hours a day and only employ reliable drivers. Taxi minibuses are available for bigger groups (consisting of a maximum of eight people). Several taxi companies are also able to provide bus and/or WMO transport (transport provided under the Dutch Social Support Act).
