Tender opens for 32 Sydney Taxi Licences


Point to Point Transport Commissioner, Barbara Wise, has announced that tenders for 32 Sydney taxi licences will be accepted from today.

The tender opens at noon and closes at noon on Wednesday 29 November and can be accessed at pointtopoint.nsw.gov.au

This is the first of two tenders for a total of 62 licences to be released in the 2017/2018 financial year, as determined by Transport for NSW earlier this year.

These licences replace existing taxi licences that were returned to Roads and Maritime Services, or that have expired.

It is the first release of taxi licences since the Government’s reforms to the point to point transport sector, which have freed up the industry from red tape, while maintaining safety standards.

“With this licence tender, taxi companies can get cars on the road in time for the festive season, making it easier for revellers to get a ride when they need one” Ms Wise said.

A tender for the remaining 30 licences will take place in early 2018.
