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.
