Super Runabout (スーパーランナバウト) is a 2000 Sega Dreamcast game by Climax Entertainment in their Runabout series of games. While this game was released only in Japan, an update, Super Runabout: San Francisco Edition, was released internationally.

The game is very similar to Crazy Taxi, as it has the user drive a series of vehicles across San Francisco to various points on the map in the shortest possible time.
