Have you ever opened up to a complete stranger? The relationship we have with a taxi driver is unique, as trust becomes critical when you’re thrust together in the confines of a cab. 

Hello Yellow: Melbourne taxis – stories, colours and manners, considers this special relationship.

Through art, film, historical photographs and artefacts, it gives you a free ride into the Melbourne taxi story.
