Taxis are a good way of getting around the immediate city of Charleston. Generally, taxis will be waiting outside of major public areas such as airports, train/bus stations, and large hotels. If outside of these areas, the best way to get a taxi is to call one of the agencies ahead of time to arrange for a pick-up.
