Enquiry Form

Canberra Elite Taxis are not involved in the independant strike action organized by taxi drivers and operators scheduled for this Wednesday 16th September from 8am – 11am. We apologise to our customers for any inconvenience.

The level of frustration in the taxi industry has reached a point where industry participants are trying by any means to have their voices heard by their community. We certainly understand the real concerns of taxi drivers and owners.

The prevailing conditions in the taxi industry due to the entrance of companies such as Uber have been grossly unfair. The response by governments on addressing the regulatory challenge has been too slow. Action taken to stop these large global corporations from making a mockery of our legal system while they make their regulatory decisions has been ineffective.

Governments need to act urgently and start ensuring that emerging technologies abide by our legislation. Taxi drivers and operators are legitimate small business owners working hard to make ends meet in a highly regulated environment with significant associated costs. The situation in Canberra threatens to become unsustainable.

We will continue to impress on the ACT Government the importance of a level playing field and will make every effort to maintain a constructive working relationship as they work through associated policy issues. One real test for any change is to guarantee real and lasting customer benefits in both service and price. We sincerely hope Canberra passes this test.

A recent United Nations labour body resolution demands that countries ensure passenger safety and drivers’ rights before considering allowing ride-sharing apps such as Uber to enter their markets. The Transport Workers’ Union (TMU) has warned that states will be breaching Australia’s international obligations unless they ensure passenger and driver safety and rights under any legal changes to allow Uber to operate.

Canberra Elite's Orbital Liquid Injection Taxi
Canberra Elite and Orbital Liquid LPG Injection are working together to promote the benefits of LPG Liquid gas systems. Canberra Elite will have three Canberra taxis presented in the green livery during 2011. These cars are our presentation vehicles to convey the message that liquid gas injection provides an 11% reduction in carbon. Ie C02 savings. These cars are fitted with the new liquid gas fuel systems. Canberra Elite's service centre in Fyshwick will be installing the new Liquid gas equipment in the cars that we add to our Canberra Elite taxi fleet, from February 2011. This new approach will improve the operational efficiency of our fleet and make a contribution to reducing greenhouse gases.
