Getting around by taxi
Hail the designated driver or just book online. In the Northern Territory, taxis can booked online, by phone and at taxi ranks, or simply hailed on the street.
All taxis have fare meters, and many companies have mini-buses, private hire cars, and taxis equipped with wheelchair accessibility. (Check when you make your booking.)
Taxis operate 24 hours per day in Darwin and surrounds. Taxi ranks are located at Darwin International Airport, the Knuckey Street end of Smith Street Mall and outside SkyCity casino, plus outside the Darwin Cinemas on Mitchell at night on weekends.
In Alice Springs, taxis are available at the airport, train station, and at taxi ranks around town.
