Additional taxi rank – Hobart waterfront

Tasmania Police, in consultation with the Hobart City Council have made arrangements for an additional taxi rank to be established in Morrison Street, Hobart, adjacent to the Customs House Hotel to assist members of the public access taxis around the waterfront and TASTE of Tasmania event.

Inspector Glen Woolley, Officer-in-Charge of the Hobart Division said, “The additional taxi rank will provide safe access for members of the public and work in conjunction with the taxi rank situated outside the Supreme Court in Salamanca Place.  Both areas provide taxi drivers and patrons with a safe and greater access to this form of public transport.”

With a higher number of people accessing taxis at this time of year Inspector Woolley urged members of the public to utilise this form of public transport, especially if they have consumed alcohol.

Both taxi ranks are well lit and provide CCTV monitoring.
