If you arrive on the island of Karpathos by plane you will see taxis waiting for passengers outside the airport building.
There is also a taxi station in the centre of the capital town (called Karpathos or Pigadia ) with a notice board listing the places to visit and the prices.

Three local men from Olymbos-Diafani have bought new comfortable cars with air conditioning and obtained the permit to run them as taxis for locals and visitors. Check the price of the transport with your driver before leaving.
Two of these men are based in Pigadia and will of course be happy to drive you up to Diafani. Their names and telephone numbers are :

George MINATSIS      Mobile phone number 697 203 9749

Nikos PROTOPAPAS    Mobile phone number 697 288 5720

The third taxi is based in Diafani and the driver will be happy to take you to Olymbos or other places on the island, including of course the capital, Pigadia and the airport.
