Victorian Taxi and Hire Car Zones

This polyline dataset represents the Victorian Taxi and Hire Car Zones. These zones were effective 30 June 2014.

Victoria's system of taxi zones comprises the following four zones: - metropolitan - urban and large regional (urban) - regional - country.

The updated zones allow taxis outside of Melbourne to work across a broader geographic area, in reaction to public demand.

This system provides new opportunities and flexibility for taxis particularly in non-metropolitan areas. Taxi operating conditions and fares vary between zones.

The zones system determines: - the annual fee for new taxi and hire car licences - what fare structure may be applicable in taxis - the driver accreditation requirements that may apply.

Determination of Taxi Boundaries 2014 was announced on 12 June 2014 following the publication of the Victorian Government Gazette.
