Taxi Fare Hotline Stickers

The Taxi rate Hotline is a service for rank-and-hailing taxi riders who have had a driver not use the meter, overcharge or refuse to take them unless they agree to a fixed rate. It’s important that people can call the Hotline.

Taxi Fare Hotline stickers will be put in all cabs in Sydney so that passengers can learn more and get help. All vehicles should have the stickers inside and outside in places that are safe, noticeable, and easy to reach. This fact sheet will tell you what the stickers are, where to put them, and how to get more of them.

The Hotline Sticker

The sticker is a circle with a width of 10 cm. It is made of a durable material that lets it be put on the inside and outside of cars.

The number and QR code for the Hotline are easy to see, so passengers can easily call the Hotline to report a problem with their fare. On the sticker, there is also information about how the meter must be on during a rank-and-hailing ride.

The Point to Point Transport Commission will send the stickers to cab companies so they can put them up and give them to their affiliates.
All cab companies and their partners should make sure that the Hotline stickers are as visible as possible in their cars.
