Some of them may be wheel chair accessible as well. There is no separate charge for persons with wheelchairs.
As per the driving law in Bermuda, persons on front seat are required to wear seat belts. However seat belts are not mandatory for people sitting at the back. The kids are safest at the back seats.
Bermuda Taxis aren't cheap though. But taxi is probably the best option for traveling to and from the Airport, and also during the nighttime when other public transports cease to operate. However the fare from airport can easily go up to $50 if you are staying at one of the beachfront hotels on the south shore.
Bermuda taxis can also be a good option when you have gone out to the west-end Dockyard or to the east end at St George's and want to get back late in the evening. The ferry and the bus services become quite irregular during the late evening hours.
However note that it may not be easy to get taxis on Friday and Saturday evenings. All the taxi drivers in Bermuda are self employed and therefore they work when and how they like to. Some may not like to go short distances while others may not be ready to drive for long.

Bermuda Taxi Tours
Since car rentals are not available in Bermuda, one of the great options for touring the island in a small private group of 4 to 6 is by taxi. And some of the taxi drivers in Bermuda are government certified tour guides. They usually charge by hour and their taxis would have a blue flag fluttering from the bonnet. Check out Bermuda Taxi Tours for details.
For airport transfers, check out Bermuda Airport Shuttles. AND, for your return flight, keep in mind that the taxi in general is likely to be 15 minutes late in picking you up. It's kind of "Bermuda Time", as they say.
