What is 'Cab Spot'?
It is a location identifier that passengers can use to name their pickup location and
is especially useful in difficult pickup locations. Eg. Cab Spot 1 is located at the main entrance of
24 Kembla Street, Fyshwick. The location of every Cab Spot is held in the Canberra Elite Taxi computerised booking system.
How can Taxi Customers use Cab Spot?
When you want to book a cab, go to the nearest Cab Spot sign,
use this unique number as your pickup point when making a booking and wait next to the sign for your Cab to arrive.
Where are Cab Spot signs
Cab Spot signs are being installed at private business addresses, generally with multiple entrances that cause
confusion for passengers and taxi drivers. For example, Shopping centres with multiple entrances will be offered
Cab Spot signs - each with their unique identification number for each entrance.
The Cab Spot sign will be fixed to a building wall or similar prominent place belonging to the business,
adjacent to the roadside kerb, in easy sight of an arriving taxi. We suggest that you use Cab Spot in
conjunction with ETA messaging.
If you have a business or organization with customers that would benefit from having a
CabSpot sign installed on your premises, please give us a call and take advantage of
sthis complimentary service. Ph) 02 6126 1696 or Email Us..
