Cost of Fare

  • All drivers should have downloaded the taxicaller 
  • passenger app , You will need to fill in the required
  • information. I suggest to you, try it several times to
  • get to know the app. This is a handy tool, if you were
  • asked how much from A to B.

When to start the Taxi Meter

  • Drivers should start the Taximeter, once the 1st passenger (s) has aligned themselves into the vehicle. and is visually aware of the Taximeter and you activating the meter. This is called the safest of modes.

  • When the customer acknowledges you are present , then you may, decide to start the meter. This is where a customer waves to you from the front door. I would be careful with this, although you are legally able to do this.

  • When a customer knows of your presents, and is taking a long time coming out to the Taxi. You are legally able to start the meter. however you will need to explain a reason. 

Be it at your own risk

Trips outside the town boundary to Hamilton, Auckland , or wherever , during the hours of Darkness , Drivers should ask for payment up front. You have been warned.
