Drivers should not approach you

It is against the law for drivers or their agents to approach you or to solicit a fare from you. With the exception of bookings made in the terminal at the Bus information counter all limousine and shuttle bus services must be pre-arranged. Cairns Airport works closely with the Department of Transport and Infrastructure to regulate this.

To report someone for soliciting please email enquiries@cairnsairport.com.au
