It is easy to get a taxi in Malaysian towns and cities. Taxis can be hailed in the street and there are also taxi ranks at shopping centres and train stations. Shared taxis also operate on busy routes and between cities.

Most Malaysian taxis are metered. However, during busy times, drivers may ask for a fixed fare, which may be negotiated. A 50 percent surcharge is applicable for taxi journeys between midnight and six o’clock in the morning.

In rural areas, taxis are used like buses and it is normal for drivers to pick up passengers en route. Taxi drivers are not usually tipped.
