Taxi licensing

Transport for NSW determines the number of taxi licences released each year across the state.

Transport for NSW has determined that a total of 62 ordinary annual taxi licences will be released in the Sydney metropolitan transport district for the 2017-18 financial year.

Please go to Taxi licences - tender, lease, renew and transfer page for information about the tender process and results, as well as more information about purchasing, leasing and transferring taxi licences.

On 19 July 2017 the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, the Hon Andrew Constance MP, has asked the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) to investigate and make recommendations relating to the number of taxi licences to be issued outside of Sydney.  The final report can be found on the IPART website.
