By | cabinminutes | No Comments

Have you heard that Australian cities were found to be more stable than cities in other countries? There was a recent survey conducted by The Economist magazine’s Intelligence Unit. Our Melbourne was ranked the world’s most liveable city for the fifth time! The other Australian cities are also on the list. They are – Adelaide fifth, Sydney seventh, Perth eighth and Brisbane 18th. It is the same ranking all these cities got last year also. One of the reasons for any city be liveable is the transport in that city, and there is considerable improvement in last ten years in the Melbourne Airport to City transport.

Cleanliness:

We all should be proud of living in the most liveable city in the World, and we have to act smart in all our ways of maintaining the ‘public face’ of this city. Cleanliness is an important aspect of any survey, and we try our best to maintain this city clean. We should be more careful about not littering any public places. We expect a cool, clean cab when we hire the western suburbs taxi, and the same way you will have to maintain the other public transport systems also.

History of Taxi Service and Today’s Modern Services

By | cabinminutes | No Comments

A Taxi service, a cab or a Taxicab is a type of vehicle for hire with a driver, used by a single passenger or small group of passengers. A taxicab conveys passengers between locations of their choice. It differs from other modes of public transport where the pick-up and drop locations are pre-set. The demand responsive transport and share taxis provide a hybrid bus/taxi mode.

There are four distinct forms of a taxicab, and their names vary in different countries:

  • Public Hire or Street Taxis
  • Private Hire or Private Taxis
  • Taxi buses or Jitneys
  • Limousines or Specialised Luxury Taxis

Taxicabs spread around the world in the early 20th century. A major innovation after the invention of the taximeter occurred in the 1940s when two-way radios appeared in taxicabs. Radios enabled taxicabs and dispatch offices to communicate and serve customers more efficiently such as using call boxes. The next major innovation was related to using computers when Computers came to every industry in the World about 30 years before.

taxi serviceAirport Taxis as a Special Service:

It is observed that Airport Taxis has always been regulated to some extent and there is less opposition to these regulations as they are limited to only Airport Area and not citywide. The Airport may determine fare or organise different queues for taxi services of different qualities. There are also restrictions on how much time a Taxi can wait near the Airport gate, and many Airports charge heavily if the Taxi stands there for more time. Now the modern taxis are more comfortable, radio-controlled, air-conditioned and booking a cab is also very easy.

Taxis in Victoria:

Taxis are a part of public transport in Victoria. Significant reforms were made to the industry in 1994 under the Jeff Kennett government, including taxi colour. In 2013, the taxi regulations were relaxed to allow colours other than yellow.

The structure and regulation of the taxi industry in Victoria is complex, particularly in metropolitan Melbourne. Every taxi requires a licence, and one vehicle only is permitted to operate on each licence. The number of licences issued is restricted, but transfers of a licence can take place.

With all these rules and regulations getting relaxed, the quality of Taxi service has not gone down; in fact, it has increased. We provide the best Airport transfer services for our customers to-and-from all three Airports in the Metropolitan area. Do call us or send us a text message for the best experience in Airport transfers by standard cabs or Silver service.

 

Why Should You Use Taxi For Airport Transportation

By | cabinminutes | No Comments

While using the Taxi for airport transportation, passengers face some common issues like inexperienced drivers, routes not known to drivers, etc. As a professional Taxi service, it becomes the responsibility of the service provider to make sure; these things are taken care in advance.

We are well-known Cab providers in the Metropolitan area, and with experience, we understand all these common issues and also know the solutions for the same. We make sure to have only experienced drivers drive our vehicles.

Experienced Drivers and Insured Cabs:

It is not only about providing a clean and tidy luxury cab as a vehicle to the passengers, but the Taxi service is much more than that. The fare should be exact; drivers should know major landmarks, all airports, railway stations, and suburbs. We make sure our drivers take care of these things and charge only the approved fare.

Do you know that the cab has to be insured to take care of any unforeseen events while carrying the passengers? We have taken care of this prime important factor and insured all the cars in our fleet. Along with luxury, safety is of prime importance, and we ensure it.

Why is Airport Taxi Service Different?

Airport transfers have a unique importance in the Taxi for airport transportation, because of the specific nature of the service. You need the taxi at the exact time, you need to reach in time but neither too early, not too late! Passengers won’t like to be at the Airport many hours before a domestic flight as well as they can’t reach at a time when they have to rush to reach the gate in time.

Another part of this service is the Airline companies changing the flight schedules! Your flight can be late by a couple of hours, and we may be at the departure end or arrival end, it affects the taxi service. A taxi service has to accommodate these changes without affecting other passengers, and that’s not an easy task. We try our best to accommodate all such requests from our customers with a smiling face, and that’s why they like us.

Why are we a Preferred Service?

CabInMinutes is a preferred Taxi service in this zone because we know our responsibilities, the drivers are knowledgeable, and strive their best to provide unique Airport pick up and drop services to all clients.
