Ballarat Taxis has a fleet of 50 modern sedans and station wagons, as well as 7 WAT`S(Wheelchair Assessable Taxis).
These WAT’s are also available for clients requiring a larger vehicle... with some able to carry up to 10 passengers.
All vehicles are GPS equipped, meaning prompt dispatch of your taxi-cab.
Hours of Operation
Our services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week or 365 days of the year.
All vehicles are fitted with anchorage points for baby capsules, meaning you can safely load your own capsule into any Ballarat Taxis. Also, we have baby capsules available at our depot for use if you so desire. Please request this service from the Operator when booking your taxi (a surcharge applies for this service).
We can deliver your parcels or documents, quickly and efficiently. This can be a hand to hand service if required and can often be quicker and of similar cost to services offered by courier companies.
Caller Line Identification identifies incoming telephone numbers and a template can be created that records the name and pickup address for future bookings. Taxi bookings are made without waiting for a operator, thus receiving priority over calls being answered by an Operator.
Each of our 7 WAT’s can carry 2 wheelchairs as well as a number of ambient passengers, and clients in wheelchairs receive priority for bookings of these vehicles. Drivers of these vehicles have received specialised training in wheelchair transportation and are very caring and efficient. A Government subsidy is available to people permanently confined to a wheelchair, giving a 50% reduction (up to $30 per trip) in the amount paid by the passenger.
Ballarat Taxis operate a state of the art, global positioning, call centre from modern, purposely designed premises. This call centre receives telephone calls and despatches taxis to other Victorian Country towns and is soon to expand this service interstate. Other telephone call taking functions are also carried out by the staff at our Call Centre.
You can check with our operator on the normal taxi booking number for items that may have been left in a taxi, although taxi drivers are required to hand in any unclaimed property to the Victorian Police.
Pre-Paid Taxi Vouchers
Do you worry about your kids spending or losing their fare home?
Do you have a family member with special transport needs?
Do you have a function coming up from which your staff, family or friends need to be transported safely home?
Ballarat Taxis are committed to assisting clients with a range of pre-paid voucher options to both simplify taxi payment and support you in providing safe and reliable “door to door” transport for children, staff, family and friends. These vouchers come in pre-printed $10 amounts or a voucher(s) to the value of your choice. More and more of our clients are discovering the convenience of keeping a stock of pre-paid vouchers, as they are “non-spendable” other than in our taxis and will be treated as “cash” by our Ballarat taxi drivers, so you will receive change back where applicable.
