IPART was asked to provide advice to the NSW Government on:
- maximum fares for rank and hail taxi services across NSW to apply from 1 July 2018, and
- the number of new taxi licences (other than licences for wheelchair accessible taxis) to be issued in areas outside Sydney from 1 July 2018.
We submitted our Final Report to the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure on 9 March 2018.
On 10 April 2018 Transport for NSW (TfNSW) announced that it had determined that 90 taxi licences will be issued in Sydney from July, but no new licences will be added to regional areas, Newcastle, Wollongong or the Central Coast, for the time being.
