In 2016, the Victorian State Government passed legislation that allowed UBER to operate however a nominal levy is paid on each fare to compensate private cab companies who paid for operator licences.
Melbourne Airport has now set up dedicated UBER pick-up point which is located between the terminal buildings and the ParkRoyal Hotel.
The My Guide Melbourne team checked it out recently and were impressed by how easy it was.
