Secure taxi ranks

Security guards are present at secure taxi ranks across NSW on Friday and Saturday nights. The guards provide a safe environment for passengers and taxi drivers.

Drivers have the option to ask you to pre-pay your taxi fare on Friday and Saturday nights at the secure taxi ranks in the Sydney CBD, Kings Cross and Surry Hills.

If a taxi driver asks you to pay the estimated fare before the start of the journey, the customer service officers at the secure ranks will help you estimate your fare. For more information please visit the Transport Info pre-paid taxi fares External website page.

Contact the Taxi Complaints Hotline on 1800 648 478 with any enquires about secure taxi ranks.
