Taking a Taxi

tips...

Sydney Taxi
©2006 Gabriel Ditu
  • Yes. A taxi can be white as well...
  • Drivers are required to accept all fares.
  • Taxi drivers can accept tips, but it is not normal practice to in Australia and there is no requirement on the passenger to do so.
  • For any comments (good or bad) phone the Taxi Customer Feedback Management System on 1800 648 478 or go to the Transport Infoline taxi service feedback.
  • Usually they come quick, but there are peak hours when you can wait for hours (eg on Friday evening).

price ...

Typical fares (for 2005 non-peak traffic, AUS dollars) you can expect to pay to or from Sydney Airport.

Note: You pay for bridge or road tolls on top of the fare.

Sydney City $25
North Sydney $35
Manly $50
Parramatta $45

Sometimes the public transport can be more expensive than the taxi. Both, CityRail and Sydney Buses charge a fortune to take you to the airport. It would be best to ask or to check the CityRail and Sydney Buses web sites for the price.
