Taxi Fares

Dec 18, 2023 | News

As we’re aware, Victoria serves as an example for taxi industry bodies across Australia for what not to do in the taxi industry!

The Victorian state government has created an environment akin to the Wild West, for those who work in it, have become the working poor, and consumers are losing confidence in this crucial part of public transport. With no regulatory oversight. It couldn’t be more different than NSW; yes, they are facing issues, the industry body NSW Taxi Council, their government and regulator are addressing it head-on.

It’s time for the Allan government to accept the failings of the 2017 taxi reforms, acknowledge the past so we can create a pathway, so we can all move forward.
