Getting around Canberra is quick, affordable and easy with its various taxi cabs and ride sharing services. Most attractions and things to see and do are located very close to each other, so order your car, then sit back, relax and enjoy the short drive.
Taxis and cabs
Canberra taxi cabs can take you wherever you need to go – whether it’s to a winery on the outskirts of the city, a restaurant in a bustling precinct, or to visit a friend in a distant suburb. The airport, train station and even regional towns such as Queanbeyan and Murrumbateman are also serviced by local operators.
To catch a taxi in Canberra, use a taxi rank where the clearly marked cars are parked and ready for dispatch. You can also phone ahead or book online.
