The Flying Taxi (Japanese: そらとぶタクシー Flying Taxi) is a form of public transportation service in Galar provided by the Galar Taxi (Japanese: ガラル交通 Galar Transport) company. These taxis are carriages pulled by Corviknight and piloted by a Cabbie. After attending the opening ceremony for the Gym Challenge in Motostoke Stadium, the player is granted access to them by a League Staff member upon exiting the stadium. After this, the player can access the Taxi from the Town Map or Habitat screen of the Pokédex, free of charge.
In addition to the Flying Taxi the player regularly uses, there is a local Flying Taxi in Wyndon located in front of the Rose of the Ronderlands Hotel and Wyndon Stadium. This taxi will take the player to and from the two aforementioned locations, the Monorail Station, and after becoming Champion, the Battle Tower as well.

Like Fly and its other counterparts, the Flying Taxi typically takes the player to that given area's Pokémon Center.

Pokémon: Twilight Wings
The Flying Taxi service has a recurring role throughout the miniseries.
In Training, Bea traveled to the Wild Area in a Flying Taxi. However, she accidentally left her smartphone in the taxicab, which prevented her from calling for help when she and her Pokémon were trapped in a cave. The cab reappeared at the end of the episode, where the Cabbie driving it returned the phone to Bea.
In Assistant, Chairman Rose spotted Oleana from the sky and picked Oleana up and took a Flying Taxi together while heading back to his office.
In Sky, all of the children from the hospital took a Flying Taxi to Wyndon Stadium for one of Leon's matches. John took a Flying Taxi late, having overslept for Leon's match. He spotted Leon getting lost on a mountain on the way and picked him up. However, they were forced to proceed on foot in order to make it to the match in time. The next day, Victor and Gloria approached the Flying Taxi, requesting for a ride.
In the manga
In PASS22, Sonia was seen traveling towards Henry and Casey's location on Route 9 aboard a Flying Taxi. However, as she was flying over Route 7, the Flying Taxi was attacked by Shielbert's Klinklang, causing it to crash-land.

- The Flying Taxi was based on a Hackney carriage.
- Braviary's Pokémon Shield Pokédex entry implies that it was originally considered to work as the Flying Taxi Pokémon, but due to its hotheaded and belligerent nature, this role was given to Corviknight instead.
- If the player takes the train to or from the Armor Station, they will automatically use a Flying Taxi to enter or leave the Isle of Armor. This will happen even if the player has not yet unlocked Flying Taxis normally.
