Affiliated Taxi Service Provider
All providers of taxi and booking services are required to be authorised under the new point to point transport legislation in NSW. This fact sheet contains information about how to become authorised, a checklist of what applicants need to provide
Authorised Taxi Service Provider
Under NSW laws, an authorised and licensed taxi can pick up passengers from a taxi rank or on the street.
Booking Service Providers
Under the new point to point transport laws in NSW, if you carry on the business of taking bookings for taxis and hire vehicles to provide passenger services, you are a Booking Service Provider.
Conditions of Authorisation
Once authorised, Taxi and Booking Service Providers are responsible for ensuring they operate their businesses legally under the NSW point to point transport law and comply with any specified conditions imposed on their authorisation.
Under the new Point to Point Transport (Taxis and Hire Vehicles) Act 2016, officers are people who hold positions of responsibility (a company director or someone in senior management) within a business.
Duty of Care and Safety Management Systems
Authorised Taxi and Booking Service Providers will now need to develop and maintain their own Safety Management System. In order to do this effectively you must understand your duty of care and what is reasonably practical.
Our Compliance Approach
The Point to Point Transport Commission will provide education and undertake advisory, auditing and, if necessary, enforcement activities across the industry to encourage industry participants to remain compliant under the new regulatory framework
Safety Standards for Drivers
Drivers have a duty of care to themselves, their passengers and others and must comply with reasonable polices and directions of authorised service providers.
Safety Standards for Taxis
The new laws outline safety standards for vehicles used as taxis.
