We have finalised our recommendations for the number of annual taxi licences to be released in Sydney in 2014, and the fares to apply in urban areas (Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong, the Central Coast and the Blue Mountains) from July 2014. Our final recommendation is for fares to be unchanged, combined with 150 additional unrestricted licences and 40 additional peak availability licences. The 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.
