We are seeking comment on draft recommendations for the number of annual taxi licences to be released in Sydney in 2014, and the fares to apply in the Sydney Greater metropolitan area from July 2014.
Our draft recommendation is for fares to be unchanged, combined with 150 additional unrestricted licences and 50 additional peak availability licences. The draft recommendations are designed to make it cheaper and easier for passengers to catch taxis, and cheaper and easier for taxi operators to run a taxi business, without causing an unreasonable impact on existing licence owners. Submissions are due by 31 January 2014
