Authorisation - glossary

The Point to Point Transport Act requires booking service providers and taxi service providers (but not affiliated taxi service providers) to be authorised by the Point to Point Transport Commissioner.

This is similar to operator accreditation or taxi network authorisation under the Passenger Transport Act 1990 (the 1990 Act), but what applicants for authorisation must demonstrate to the Commissioner up-front is much simpler than what was required under the 1990 Act.

Unlike under the 1990 Act, drivers do not need to hold an authorisation issued by the Commissioner.
