Burdekin Taxis

Media Alert

Townsville Taxis and Burdekin Taxis wish to advise residents across the region that we are working with emergency services and are on call to provide evacuations of vulnerable residents in the pathway of Tropical Cyclone Debbie at no charge if requested by authorities.

We are also available to assist at no charge in the transportation of any emergency services or SES personnel during the emergency period.

Emergency services personnel and residents that require evacuation must call emergency services on 132 500, not Townsville Taxis or Burdekin Taxis.

Taxis in all areas will continue to be available while safe prior to the arrival of Tropical Cyclone Debbie and be available as soon as practicable after the cyclone has passed. We will be following police and council instruction on when we can resume service.

Residents should stay updated on the Townsville Disaster Information Facebook page or
