Taxi fares are metered - there is no bargaining a fare in Australia. The major factor that affects the fare is traffic delays - which are frequent. Morning peak is from 6am to 9.30am and afternoon peak can start at 2.30pm. We have just returned from Honolulu and Sydney's traffic is very similar.
Other factors such as toll charges and airport charges can also add to the fare.
Gay - You should be through security/customs/quarantine etc by 8.30, the taxi could take several different ways from the AP to Pitt St Meriton. No toll route would take longer but driver has options if the motorway has a problem. The toll route would include the Eastern Distributor (ED) and Cross City Tunnel coming out at Bathurst St. The apartments are on the corner of Bathurst and Pitt.
