The Blue Bubble Alliance is made up of 15 Taxi Companies throughout New Zealand. We operate around 2,000 Taxis under the Blue Bubble Logo and have around 3,000 drivers.

We provide greater choice than any other taxi company in New Zealand. We have cars available 24/7, and we make it easy for you to get a taxi wherever and whenever you need one all across the country. We’ve made booking a taxi as easy as possible for you: book online, through our app, over the phone, or simply hail a taxi on the street.

We are proud to be a New Zealand owned company, and follow all of New Zealand’s taxi licensing laws. Blue Bubble supports the New Zealand economy by employing local drivers and complying with the legislation and rules that govern our industry.

We’ve been safely driving kiwis for work, pleasure and convenience for more than 80 years. We take your safety very seriously and exceed the safety regulations that the New Zealand Transport Agency sets out for taxi companies.

We are committed to our local communities and pride ourselves on being there for everyone when they need us. We regularly provide transportation services to elderly and disabled people. We also give back to the greater communities by supporting events and working with partner organisations.

Our Drivers

Our drivers are the heart of our taxi companies. Blue Bubble drivers are committed to going that extra mile for your comfort and satisfaction. We understand that taxi drivers need to be completely trustworthy, as they are often carrying vulnerable passengers.

We follow a thorough vetting process when employing drivers that includes an extensive, independent “fit and proper” person check completed by the New Zealand Transport Agency in conjunction with the Police. All Blue Bubble drivers are required to gain an Area Knowledge Certificate and must pass an English Language test. All Blue Bubble drivers receive on-going training to maintain these standards, as well as keep log books and all vehicles have a, superior, Certificate of Fitness (COF).

Our vehicles

We have a range of cars and vans for hire to suit your needs.


We have the largest network of taxis across the country with a fleet of over 2,000, white, late model cars. We aim to provide our passengers with the best service and the best cars, while remaining committed to reducing our environmental impact. As part of our environment policy, from 2008 we have been phasing out petrol only cars. Our aim is that our entire fleet will consist of more fuel efficient vehicles.


As part of our commitment to providing an excellent service, we have a range of vans available for hire. This provides you with the choice to easily transport a larger number of people. To ensure a van is available for you in your local area, please book in advance. Call your local taxi company to arrange this service. Please note our van services may differ or be limited in certain places.
