Russell Island Taxi


We are looking forward to announcing an upgrade to our service on Russell Island in the New Year.

It will be an upgrade to capacity and a price reduction for the northern end of Russell.

The reduction involves a 4 at the beginning of the fare!

We just need to refine having the 2 vehicles running and a reliable presence at the jetty.

We’ve already implemented a price reduction on Macleay Island, with new zone pricing of $5 from Frances Rd back to the jetty. Thanks to Macleay Islanders for the increased uptake from that fare reduction.

Once we get the 2 vehicle operation on Russell settled, it’s proposed to make the northern end from the jetty to be $4.50.

I’ll take this opportunity to thank David & Ulla and their team from the Macleay Isl taxi. They do an amazing job operating beside us. Happy New Year Girls and Guys!

To the taxi operator on Russell, I actually wish you the best as well. I had a hope that you could collaborate like we did on Macleay, but you chose your path. On Macleay, we grew together with the Taxi, but you chose the path of aggression.

I hope your family finds the destination you are aiming for Carol & John and family.

Happy days on Russell, like Macleay now enjoys! 👍😊🙏🖖

A reminder that New Year’s Eve, we are operating through till 2am

You can book on line through our website or phone 0428115886.

Hey everyone! Please be patient this afternoon, we are having some technical issues, Micah is trying his hardest to get to you when he can. Thank you.


Russell Island Taxi Service would like to state that comments made today on Facebook by one of our drivers about Bay Islands White Goods were inappropriate and totally unwarranted. Thank you.


Hi Customers! Please go to the Telstra page and please complain about the lack of service we are getting on the Island! The technician was here yesterday, and he even struggled to get service. Please! The more we complain the more they will realise something needs to be done!


Hi Everyone! Sorry our phones are playing up and have been since January. We have rung Telstra and with no such luck they keep saying that there is no problem.. we are sorry, but are trying our best.


On behalf of all the staff and drivers of Russell Island Taxi, we hope you had a safe New Years Eve. We wish you all a safe and happy 2017, and look forward to seeing you all in the new year!
