Taxi servicesThe Victorian taxi industry has a fleet of thousands of vehicles across the state. Taxis can be hired by booking over the phone or internet, 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.
Major taxi companies operating within Melbourne are listed below.
To find taxi services within other areas of Victoria, see the Victorian Taxi Association.
BicyclesMelbourne Bike Share is a public bike hire scheme whereby the general public can share the use of bicycles to get around Melbourne. Around 50 bike stations are located around inner city Melbourne and a bike can be collected from one of those station and and returned to any other station.
A daily, weekly or annual subscription can be purchased which allows the rider 30 minutes free use of a bicycle during each trip made during the subscription period. Usage fees apply if any of your trips exceed 30 minutes.
It is compulsory that anyone riding a bicycle on a road, bike path or in a public place in Victoria must wear a helmet for protection. Users of Melbourne Bike Share can either bring their own helmet or buy a low-cost helmet from vending machines at designated locations or from selected 7-Eleven convenience stores.
For further information, see Melbourne Bike Share.
