You may have noticed some new taxi point signage around the UC campuses – there are 13 in all, ten on Ilam and three on Dovedale.
The UC Procurement Team have negotiated an arrangement with four preferred Christchurch taxi companies with significant benefits for the University, UC staff and their families.
Benefits include reduced rates and set fares for frequent journeys like UC to the airport. All a user need do when ordering a taxi is to quote the number of the taxi point they are waiting at, and have UC identification, such as a Canterbury card or UC Taxicharge voucher, on hand when the cab arrives.
Information on the different features offered by the preferred suppliers is available on the intranet.
The preferred taxi companies are:
Corporate Cabs: (03) 379 5888
First Direct: 0800 50 55 55
Gold Band: (03) 379 5795
Green Cabs: 0800 46 47 336
