Regular taxi services
Colombo has several regular taxi services, which includes the likes of Kangaroo Cabs. You can call these services – or use their app – and order a taxi.
Sri Lanka is famous for its ‘tuk-tuks’ – small, three-wheeled taxis, that offer seating capacity for up to 3 passengers.
Tuk-tuks are typically cheap, and faster because the drivers will use short-cuts in congested streets. However, always make sure that you ride on a ‘metered’ tuk-tuk to avoid excessive rates that may be quoted by some drivers.
