From day one, we’ve responded to the needs of our community in Ballarat and beyond. Through amalgamations and relocations, that’s been our focus and it’s what we pride ourselves on today. The Ballarat Taxis way.
We started operations after an amalgamation of Radio Cabs Pty Ltd and Ballarat
We relocated from Sansom Petroleum in Creswick Road to 911 Doveton St, North, Ballarat.
We bought the property next door at 909 Doveton St Nth, Ballarat. This provided stability and impetus to propel us into the future.
The Victorian taxi industry underwent major reform with the introduction of a common livery known as ‘Victorian Taxi Yellow’. Strict new licensing procedures and accreditation of all depots meant strict government regulations were adhered to.
We started redeveloping our site to include a large convenience store and petrol station. The complex was opened by the Hon Jeff Kennett MLA on July 14, 1999.
In March 2017 we converted from a Co-operative to a Company Limited by Shares. The Taxi Industry was reformed in August 2017 with government buying back licences and open entry into the industry was allowed.
