In metropolitan Melbourne, commercial passenger vehicle services are currently restricted.
From 11:59pm 28 September 2020, metropolitan Melbourne entered the Second Step of the Metro Melbourne Roadmap with some easing of restrictions. At this Step, the curfew does not apply in metropolitan Melbourne from 5am on Monday 28 September.
This means drivers can pick up or drop off a passenger, however for passengers living in metropolitan Melbourne should only use a commercial passenger vehicle to travel for permitted work, or for emergencies, medical, care or compassionate purposes.
These measures are in place to keep everyone safe and to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
People can still only leave home for only four reasons and must continue to stay local (5km), with exemptions for people who live alone (who are able to have one nominated visitor to their home).
Drivers can still work during coronavirus (COVID-19) and continue to be a permitted service. Drivers are still required to hold a permitted worker permit and are still required to comply with the COVIDSafe Plan of their booking service provider.
Drivers and your passengers must still wear a face mask (unless the driver or their passenger has a lawful exemption).
