Data confidence level:
This FACT indicates the cost of a 10km taxi trip between 19:00 and 5:59 (off peak) in each Australian city. Due to a nation-wide crackdown on drink driving, coupled with relatively few public transport options and connections, taxis are, for many, the only viable transport option for a night out. Based on results from taxifare.com.au in 2018 using the taxi fare calculator, the city with the highest fare during off-peak hours is Sydney, at $29.90 per 10km. The city with the lowest is Melbourne at $23.24 per 10km.
