As the demand for taxis in the city of Perth and its surrounding areas and suburbs fluctuates, the Department for Planning and Infrastructure introduced the concept of peak period taxis.
These peak period taxis are only operational when demand for taxis is high. These times normally include Friday and Saturday nights and during special events such as concerts and shows.
The main purpose of peak period taxis is to increase Perths taxi fleet during peak times to reduce waiting times for customers.
Peak period taxis are easily identified by unique "Peak Period" stickers located on the taxi itself.
