Taxis for the average Cuban are more like a giant ride share operation. Taxi operators drive different circuits around Havana and for a few Cuban Pesos will pick you up and drop you off along their route. It’s a good deal for Cubans. Although there are often five passengers with the driver, it’s more efficient and less crowded than the buses. It’s fun to observe the process of flagging down a taxi, making a deal for the fare, and crowding into the seats.
