Getting around Hobart


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

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.


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.
