Taxi in Melbourne has been around for over a century now. At one time it was the only option apart from public transport to move from one side of the town to other. But as the days and years passed and with the advent of mobile phones and technology now the common man has more options to choose from instead of just relying on taxi service.
But still after so much of advancements even today taxi remained and will remain number 1 alternate for a quick ride. There are several reasons why. Let's analyze them to find the answer.

No.1 reason is Taxi service operate with NO SURGE. It doesn't matter if its busy, quiet, or less taxis running or more taxis on the road. Once you find a taxi near me and call them to book one with a fixed price taxi that's it. You won't end up paying anything extra if you are on time and you are going the destination you informed.
