Public Disclosure | ACT taxi plate data (Oct 2015)

In the interests of open public disclosure Aerial would like to publish ACT taxi plate data (Oct 2015).



We do this following requests from various social media contacts (Facebook, twitter). Twiterati have been answered directly but Aerial publishes this data to ensure a wider distribution of this information.


ACT taxi market – Total taxi plates 358

Perpetual plates – 217

Government Leased plates – 141

Government leased plates on the road working – 95

Government leased plates returned to Gov. i.e. not working – 46

Taxi plates allocated to Wheelchair taxis (WAT) and on the road – 26. All Gov. leased plates.


ACT taxis are typically double shifted 24/7/365. Taxis provide a full service to Canberra with an average time to pickup of less than 5.5 minutes.

Aerial’s network fees equate to 10.6% of the average fare. Ridesharing commission varies between 20 to 30% of the fare. This is typically more than twice the service cost charged by taxi networks in Canberra.

Taxis in the ACT cannot legally surge price.

ACT Taxis do not charge booking cancellation fees.

Travel spending in Canberra took a major hit from the 2012 GFC. Airline travel decline (2012 – 2014) into Canberra is the best example of this expenditure downturn. Taxi business since 2013 is showing annual growth in real terms.

Ridesharing impact on taxi business as of early Nov. 2015 is being assessed.

Aerial report actual taxi workload and performance data monthly to the ACT Gov. This data will also be published monthly on Aerial’s website.
