Taxis

The Victorian taxi industry has a fleet of thousands of vehicles across the state. Taxis based in the Melbourne metropolitan area are easily identifiable by their bright yellow or green paintwork. In regional Victoria, taxis may be any colour.

Taxis can be hired by booking over the phone, the internet, mobile phone app, at a designated cab rank or by flagging down a taxi on the street. A taxi is available for hire if its dome light is illuminated.

Taxi fares

Taxi fares depend on the distance travelled, duration of journey, time of day and where in Victoria you hire a taxi from. Additional charges arise if the taxi is booked in advance or the journey uses toll roads.

Fares must be prepaid for trips between 10pm and 5am.
