Taxi arrangements

A taxi rank is located in the Forecourt Basement car park, adjacent to the eastern steps from the Forecourt (see map). The rank has a phone allowing free calls to Canberra Cabs and Cabxpress. The relevant phone numbers are shown on a sign above the phone.

Using the taxi rank

Go to the rank in the Forecourt Basement car park and take the first available taxi. If there is not a taxi on the rank, call one of the taxi firms using the free phone. The taxi firm will not accept bookings for the rank but they will advise all taxis that there is a customer waiting at the rank and send a car.
