Taxis aren't a common sight in the Wine Country—most visitors are driving a rental car. Still, you might want to take a cab to and from dinner, especially if you want to indulge in a cocktail or a few glasses of wine. All cabs are metered: expect to pay $3 upon pickup and another $2.50 to $3 per mile thereafter, depending on the city you're in. Taxi drivers usually expect a 15%–20% tip for good service. Cabs must be called rather than hailed.
A to Z Cab serves the entire Napa Valley. Napa Valley Cab is another option. All City Taxi serves Santa Rosa, Healdsburg, Rohnert Park, and Sebastopolns. Vern's Taxi serves the Sonoma Valley (Sonoma, Glen Ellen, Kenwood, Santa Rosa). Yellow Cab serves Santa Rosa and Kenwood. A-C Taxi, which owns Healdsburg Taxi, serves the entire county.
