Taxi travel information for State of Origin fans
Taxi Council Queensland (TCQ) will again operate a secure rank on Castlemaine Street outside the YMCA after tonight’s State of Origin Game 1 from 9:30pm – 12:30am.
Those customers booking a taxi by phone or by the Yellow or Black & White Cabs smartphone apps, should arrange to be picked up away from Suncorp Stadium due to limited access resulting from traffic congestion. Access to Milton Road, Castlemaine Street and Caxton Street will be limited.
There will be a dedicated disabled pick up and drop off zone near the Wally Lewis statue in the Suncorp Stadium forecourt on Given Terrace/Caxton Street. TCQ reminds customers that no abled passengers will be picked up from disabled zones.
Taxis will be available on Petrie Terrace at the rank outside Hotel LA once the street has been reopened to traffic. Fans who want to continue their post-match celebrations will also be able to catch taxis at a secure rank outside the Treasury Building in George Street.
