Auckland CBD Taxi Ranks


11:03 pm in Community

There are taxis operating in the Auckland region – a large proportion of them visiting Auckland’s CBD at some point each day.

To ensure the best of use of the limited parking space available, some taxi ranks having different uses at different times of the day. It’s important taxi drivers and potential customers check road signs to ensure they are parked legally. 

Both passengers and taxi drivers have rights and responsibilities, as set out by the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA). For more information, see factsheet 21 (Taxis and Shuttles: Rights and Responsibilities) on the NZTA website.
