Taxis and ridesharing services make getting around Melbourne easy.


Several taxi companies operate within Melbourne and can be flagged at a taxi rank, on the street, or booked using an app or over the phone. ​While taxis in Melbourne used to be yellow, these days are a variety of colours.

When the dome light is lit up, the taxi is available for hire. Details on the fares are on a sticker inside the taxi. Always ask for a receipt, it will help if you have lost property or wish to provide feedback.
