Kaufman Cabs is a taxi firm appearing in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.


It is located in Little Haiti, Vice City. The business operates a fleet of Kaufman Cab taxis, and employs long-serving employee Delores as a dispatcher and Ted as a taxi driver. Kaufman Cabs' main rivals are Vice City Cabs, who are a bigger firm with more taxis.

The business can bought by Tommy Vercetti in 1986 for $40,000. After completing the three missions for Kaufman Cabs, the asset will earn a maximum $5,000 between pick-ups. In Vice City Stories, however, Kaufman Cabs is closed and doesn't have a sign just like other assets in Vice City game.


The firm takes its name from the late actor Andy Kaufman, who played a taxi mechanic in the Taxi TV series. Also, the depot of Kaufman Cabs has the basic layout of the Sunshine Cab Company from the same TV series.
