Taxis are available from the taxi rank on the corner of Todd Street and Gregory Terrace, near the Alice Springs Visitor Information Centre.

Alice Springs is mostly flat except for Anzac Hill, so riding a bike is a great way to explore the town. Longhorn Bikes, a local company that rents out bicycles, operate out of most hotels and hostels in Alice Springs.
