In response, the NSW Government is progressively introducing reforms to the taxi, hire car and rideshare industry, to provide more opportunities for the whole industry, as well as improving safety and choice for customers.

The Point to Point Transport (Taxis and Hire Vehicles) Bill 2016 was passed by the NSW Parliament on 22 June 2016. View the legislation External website.
