Fares & Peak Hours
Taxi job requests use your meter – simply start the meter after collecting your passenger. At the end of the trip, stop the meter, enter the amount into the GoCatch app and process the payment in-app or via your EFTPOS terminal.
Taxi drivers are also able to receive Economy jobs when no Economy vehicles are nearby for passengers. Taxi, Maxi and Economy job requests are labeled accordingly with fare estimates. When accepting Economy jobs, drivers do not need to use the Taxi meter.
