Uber connects you with a reliable ride in minutes. One tap and a car comes directly to you. Your driver knows exactly where to go. And payment is completely cashless.

Download the UBER app on your iPhone or Android device to get started.



TAXIS

Hobart taxis are easy to spot, as they display a lamp on the car roof and most are painted yellow, silver or white. You can book taxi pickup for a set location, or take one from a cab rank at signposted spots. You may also hail a taxi in the street. If the rooftop lamp is lit, the taxi is usually unoccupied and available for hire.

Popular services are:

  • 13CABS – 132 227
  • Australia Wide Taxi – 131 008

Rideshare trips are available via apps with Uber, Taxify and DiDi. The apps show fare estimates, driver’s pictures, vehicle details, and tracks the trip on a map.

About AEVA

The Australian Electric Vehicle Association (AEVA) LTD is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the cause of switching Australia's transport networks to electric drive as quickly as possible.  We all share a common interest in electromobility and climate-friendly transport. Formed after the oil price shocks of 1973, the AEVA is the longest continuously running EV society in the world.  We represent all EV users and enthusiasts, current and prospective, and are more than happy to offer jargon-free advice on which EV is right for you. We also make regular submissions to government and industry about policies which will help transition to electric drive, and away from imported fossil fuels for transport.
