Taxi companies operate in all Polish cities, with varying fares. This means of transportation is popular among tourists and locals alike.

Taxi drivers are also subject to holding adequate driving licenses and a complete training course for taxi driving purposes (an attestation of competence).

Apart from the licensing requirements, taxi companies in Poland need to be registered for business and tax purposes and have a registered office in a Polish city. The taxi company can start with a few cars and a subsequent expansion of the car fleet can take place once the company develops.

All companies in Poland are required to have a unique company name and the same applies to these types of companies. Investors can design their unique taxi logo and apply for trademark registration in Poland.
