Drivers and Vehicles

Driving standards

As a co-operative society all our drivers own their vehicles and have a stake in the business. To join us, drivers must hold five Area Knowledge Certificates; North Shore, Waitakere, Auckland City, Manukau City and Papakura, and also pass an extra ACTS Permit test, which further tests area knowledge. We also put drivers through an internal Driving Assessment.

Once a driver has passed these two tests, we place them on our Training Programme, which covers Health and Safety, Passenger Management and Technical Training. Every driver is then reviewed annually to assess their performance.


Our fleet boasts over 760 vehicles, covering the entire greater Auckland area. All vehicles are fitted with GPS equipment and our hi-tech dispatch system sends the closest car in your area, minimizing waiting times.

Our extensive fleet is made up of late model cars and includes a full range of vehicle sizes, to carry all kinds of groups.

Environmental Class

ACTS have the largest environmental fleet in Auckland with over 500 vehicles in this vehicle class. ACTS provide an environmentally friendly service with our Eco Fleet of Toyota Prius Hybrid vehicles, diesel and LPG. Customers are able to request an ‘Environmentally Friendly’ vehicle at the time of booking.

Business Class

This fleet is currently comprised of 50 Ford Fairlane, LTD and Holden Statesman vehicles. These vehicles are designed to cater for the high expectations of our corporate clients and can be ordered in advance for removal of any taxi insignia.

All drivers of our Business Class vehicles undergo Advanced Customer Services training to meet a higher standard of presentation.
