Taxi travel information for State of Origin fans
Taxi Council Queensland (TCQ) is urging State of Origin fans to be patient when catching cabs tonight due to the expected exceptional demand for taxis for the blockbuster at Suncorp Stadium.
In anticipation of a capacity crowd to cheer on the Maroons, a secure taxi rank will operate on Castlemaine Street outside the YMCA from 9:30pm-12:30am.
After the game, customers booking taxis by phone or via the Yellow or Black & White Cabs smartphone apps should arrange to be picked up away from the Stadium due to limited access caused by traffic congestion on Milton Road, Castlemaine Street and Caxton Street.
Taxis will be available at the rank outside Hotel LA on Petrie Terrace when the street is reopened to traffic.
There will be a dedicated disabled pick-up/drop off zone near the Wally Lewis statue in the forecourt on Given Terrace/Caxton Street. TCQ reminds customers no abled passengers will be picked up from disabled zones.
Fans continuing their post-match celebrations will be able to catch taxis at a secure rank outside the Treasury Building in George Street.
