Melbourne taxis are easy to spot, as they display a lamp on the cab roof and most are painted yellow, silver or white. You can book a taxi cab pick-up for a set location, or take one from a cab rank at signposted spots. You may also hail a taxi in the street. If the rooftop lamp is lit, the taxi is usually unoccupied and available for hire. Rideshare trips are available via apps with Uber, Taxify and DiDi. Apps show fare estimate, driver’s picture, vehicle details, and can track your trip on a map.
