Take care of Yourself!
From a sanitary and epidemiological point of view, a taxi is a safer mode of transport than public transport, where a bigger amount of people are traveling at the same time. However, passengers should be wearing a mask in a taxi.

What we are doing during this pandemic
For customers’ safety in the Covid-19 pandemic, Taxi Service Mauritius vehicles have developed policies and technology options that allow and prioritize contactless transactions that limit or eliminate close contact
All Taxi Service Mauritius taxi vehicles are disinfected after each ride. Apart from that, drivers are obliged to regularly wipe the door handles with antiseptics, carry out wet cleaning of the salon, and regularly ventilate the car.
Taxi Service Mauritius monitors the health of drivers and prevents employees with any symptoms of acute respiratory viral infections (fever, cough, runny nose) to work. We provide drivers with disposable masks, gloves, hand sanitizers, and other disinfectants.
Supporting healthcare workers
Taxi Service Mauritius is providing free transportation for frontline healthcare workers, helping them get to and from patients’ homes, as well as between healthcare facilities.
Feeding first responders during the lockdowns
We’re providing delivery of free meals on to first responders and healthcare workers in Mauritius, in coordination with health organizations and the local government.
Transport first responders
We’ve made 50% of our unused fleet available to the local health organizations for the transportation of healthcare workers from their homes to their place of work & back.

Important information for drivers
Cleaning supplies for your car
We are working to provide drivers with disinfectants to help you keep your car clean. Supplies are very limited, but we’re partnering with manufacturers and distributors to source as much as possible. We’ll be prioritizing distribution to drivers in cities with the greatest need.
Supporting public health authorities
We have a team available 24/7 to support public health authorities in their response to the pandemic. Working with them, we may temporarily suspend the accounts of drivers confirmed to have contracted or been exposed to COVID‑19. We’re also consulting with an epidemiologist to make sure our efforts as a company are grounded in medical advice.
Support if you’re taken off the road
Any driver who is diagnosed with COVID‑19 or is individually asked to self‑isolate by a public health authority will receive financial assistance for up to 14 days while their account is on hold.
