Taxi ranks all over Sydney are still being affected by construction. The latest ranks to feel the bite of the shovel are:

Carrington St CBD – we were originally going to lose all 12 spaces on Carrington St but we negotiated that down to 6.

Harbour St Darling Harbour – Construction on the building will be carried out until December this year. We are investigating the possibility of operating the rank when the builders are not working.

Church St Lidcombe – originally the 7-car rank was going to be temporarily located across the road as a 4-space rank outside the Lidcombe Hotel but we persuaded Sydney Trains to allocate a further 4 spaces outside Dooley’s Lidcombe catholic Club. If this arrangement works out Sydney trains will adopt this as a procedure to be used every time there is trackwork at Lidcombe (approx. 8 times a year). Please help this to be a success.

MARDI GRAS 2021 - VASTLY DIFFERENT THIS YEAR

Richard Burnhill - Operations Manager

This event is vastly different this year, there will be no parade through the streets of Darlinghurst. The parade will be taking place at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The taxi rank in the Entertainment Quarter on Errol Flynn Boulevarde will be the active rank for this event. We will be providing Commissionaires from 20:00.

There will be an expected 23,000 patrons, 5,000 participants – NO floats or vehicles (except Dikes on Bikes).
