The taxi is only ever used to travel between towns and, unlike the bus or the train, it cannot be seen or boarded except when moving. It drops or picks up the player from in front of the town hall, and is the setting used while Kapp'n is asking the introductory questions that affect the player's appearance, name, and gender, as well as the town name and layout. The taxi has a very simplistic design. There is a glass partition between the front of the taxi, where Kapp'n sits and the back part, where the player sits. Most of the back part is never seen by the player. The front has all the typical trappings of a car and also has a small figurine of Kapp'n in his boat from the first Animal Crossing.
- Sometimes, when the taxi ride ends, the figurine of Kapp'n and his boat will fall over right before the taxi arrives at its destination.
- The taxi, like all vehicles in the game, is left hand drive, despite the fact that the game is made in Japan, where they drive on the left side of the road.
