You can reach an English-speaker by calling or emailing us. Our English-Speaking scheduling department
will assist you in arranging your transportation needs.

We currently have 11 full time drivers (several of the drivers speak English), 2 full time translators (for when we run out of English speaking drives) and several part time drivers. Below is our core group of employees that makes up our family here at Santo Domingo Taxi.
