Each terminal has its own sheltered taxi rank with supervisors on hand in peak hours to ensure a smooth flow of taxis for travellers.

Kerbside supervisors can also organise taxis with baby capsules, wheelchair access, five-seaters, station wagons for lots of baggage, and maxi taxis for groups.
Drivers are required to accept all fares, big and small, from the airport. If you are only travelling a short distance, drivers can return back to their place in the queue after they have taken you to where you need to go. The kerbside management team will help you and your driver with this request.
Please note that taxis are not permitted to pick up passengers outside of the taxi ranks and the driver will be fined AU$5,000 for breaking the regulation.
Accessible taxi facilities
Sydney Airport continues to improve its services for disabled passengers and has introduced a new system to accommodate taxi drivers assisting passengers to and from the terminal buildings. Drivers will be able to leave their vehicles in designated pre-booked taxi bays at both the international and domestic terminals. Different procedures apply for drop off and pick-up at each terminal and additional kerbside management officers are be on hand to manage the system and assist drivers and passengers. Customers requiring accessible taxis are advised to pre-book where possible.
