“I wear my vote as a badge of honour” says Rod “Since coming to parliament, I have started four inquiries’, the free tram zone inquiry, the homelessness inquiry, the regional public transport inquiry and the MPTP inquiry. I managed to get a $22 million dollar support package for the taxi industry in the middle of a pandemic”
We have got to get this industry stable, because the flow-on effect is enormous.
I would like the Minister for Public Transport to reflect on what has been said here today. Pause this program. We are not saying stop it. We are saying pause the program, let us do this properly, let us do the inquiry and we may be able to knock it out much quicker, but we have got to do what is fair for the disability sector and the people who work in it.
Today Rod requested that the CPVV hand over documents showing the rationale, evidence and results for UBER’s Multi-Purpose Taxi Program trial.
