How it works

Green Cabs operates as a hail and ride service. The information below shows where our cabs wait and when they are likely to be out.

At Surfers Paradise we operate everyday but only after 6pm. On Friday and Saturday nights, and nights before a public holiday, our riders work all night. From Sunday-Thursday we ride 6pm-10pm, sometimes later.
