Tahiti Transport


Tahiti is the best equipped island in French Polynesia when it comes to infrastructure. It has its own public transit system known as 'Le Truck', with open-air vehicles covering Papeete and surrounding towns and making frequent, informal stops. There are plenty of taxis and these can be hailed on the street, but it is best to call for them via the hotel concierge who can also advise on tariffs. Car rentals can be arranged at the airport or major hotels. Helicopters or a variety of sea-going craft can be hired for island tours and there is a convenient ferry travelling regularly between Tahiti and nearby Moorea.
