Greenport is small and easy to navigate, which makes the need for taxis virtually none. But should you need one to get out to Orient Beach, or to one of North Fork's many wineries, Maria's Taxi (631-477-0700/765-2221) is the local service. Taxis don't usually wait for passengers by the train station unless it's the busy season.
