I'm trying to build a self-listing website around a taxi service domain name that I have.

I am looking for a simple script / program that allows users to register, put up details about their taxi service - where they operate, what their contact numbers are, etc.

I'm not looking for a sophisticated program - bares bones is perfect.

You could give these a shot:

Though, to be honest, I'm not too impressed by any of the commercial or open source options. You might want to try to adapt a more general purpose wiki (niche software generally has fewer developers & software publishers, and thus lower software quality) as Evgeny suggests, or otherwise look for a Drupal/Joomla module or something.

You might find a wiki useful, there are plenty of those available and most are simple enough. See wikimatrix.org for a comparison of wikis to find the ones with proper permissions support.

Or you can use a blog, like wordpress.org, that will allow people to leave comments with their details after registering.

Or you can hire a programmer for 2 hours of work and get the very basic thing you are talking about.

Directory software would work well, too. It would allow you to break down down by location, too. phpLD would be a good one to use.
