Taxi licence tenders

Taxi licence tenders

The taxi licence tender is the process for obtaining a new taxi licence. Each year applications for new taxi licences (other than WAT & ordinary taxi licences) are determined through this tender process. 

Transport for NSW (TfNSW) decides how many taxi licences can be issued in Sydney and regional NSW. The tender process is then run by the Point to Point Transport Commissioner. 

Each year TfNSW will determine the number of licences to be released, if any.
