Submission: Taxi licences and on-demand transport

Publication date: 
December 2018

This submission on the ACT’s reform to the on-demand transport industry (including taxis, rideshare and hire cars) prioritises the need to sustain an adequate supply of on-demand transport within a viable and well-regulated taxi transport industry that is affordable to those who need it and maintains access for those who are most reliant on the network. We note the need to plan for more accessible vehicles within the on-demand mix and the current work around transport integration including community transport, buses, taxis, ride-sharing services and light rail.
