Super taxi ranks
Catching a cab home after a night out in central Sydney will become easier and safer when 2 expanded taxi ranks begin operating on the October long weekend (3–5 October).
With space for 15 and 22 cabs, respectively, on Bathurst and Pitt streets, the new 'super ranks' will help patrons of some of Sydney’s busiest nightspots access cabs between 10pm and 6am each Friday and Saturday night.
Transport for NSW marshals will supervise both cab ranks, which will also be overseen by CCTV cameras linked to the City of Sydney’s 24-hour street camera monitoring room.
The larger Pitt Street rank on the eastern side of the street, just north of Martin Place, will become the biggest rank in the city.
The City has been working closely with Roads and Maritime Services and the CBD Co-ordination Office to establish the 2 super taxi ranks.
The Bathurst Street rank on the northern kerb west of George Street will replace the existing Park Street rank, which is being relocated as part of traffic changes associated with light rail construction.
The new ranks are part of measures to tackle alcohol-related violence in Sydney and have been established under the NSW government’s Sydney CBD entertainment precinct plan of management.

Taxis in Sydney can be hailed from the kerb on the street or engaged at one of several designated taxi ranks throughout the city centre.
Taxis can also be booked directly with one of numerous private taxi companies operating across the city.
The NSW Taxi Council is the peak body for taxis, which has a contact listing of taxi companies across the state on its website.
The Transport Info website has information on fares and charges, feedback and complaints, and lost property.
Secure taxi ranks are staffed by security guards late on Friday and Saturday nights. There are several secure taxi ranks across the City of Sydney. See below for details.
Visit the Transport Info website to check the hours of operation and location for each secure taxi rank in NSW.
