Australian Cities – Initial Release (5/16/2013)

TaxiFareFinder is excited to announce the release of taxi fare calculators for eighteen cities in Australia.  Although we already had a few Australian calculators before this, we are looking to expand our presence and continue to add new cities.  Please let us know how these calculators perform: they are still in the early phases, so feedback is always welcomed!

Taxi etiquette in Australia is a little different from that of the United States as well as many other countries.  After hailing a cab in Australia, it is expected that you sit in the front seat next to the driver.  If there are multiple passengers in a party, it is customary for the first rider to fill the passenger seat and the rest to then continue into the back seat.  It is viewed as very impolite to sit in the back seat first and drivers see it as an indication of inequality. For more information on this, check out our article.
