Taxicabs in the Kingston Area are all required to have a rooftop sign which states “Taxi” and Taxi Plate numbers posted on the front of their fenders. 

If the Taxi has no rooftop sign or number on the fender, you are getting into an illegal taxi which means that your safety is at risk and you may not be covered if you are involved in an accident. The driver may appear harmless, but they may have a criminal record and or no Ontario Driver's Licence.

Residents, students or visitors using these taxis may be at risk and are asked to report any use of these drivers. The Highway Traffic Act has been amended as of January 2006 to include offenses for transporting passengers for compensation without municipal or government issued licenses. They will be convicted with fines up to $5,000.00.
