Secure taxi ranks are staffed by experienced taxi rank supervisors and/or security guards, and in some locations, CCTV surveillance is in place.
At a secured taxi rank, patrons can expect:
- to queue in an environment that is free from unruly and in appropriate behaviour
- an organised supply of taxis to the rank to meet demand
- management of the flow of passengers and organisation of share rides as required
- answers to customer queries about routes and fares.

- Orchid Avenue near the Dolphin Arcade in Surfers Paradise
- Oasis Precinct at Broadbeach on the Western end of Oasis Shopping Centre in Victoria Avenue
