NSW Transport & Infrastructure launches ATIS information on website
ATIS Examiners and other NSW Taxi Industry stakeholders have ready access to information relating to the Authorised Taxi Inspection Station (ATIS) scheme at the NSW Transport & Infrastructure (NSW T&I) website.
The following information can be accessed from this page or from the ‘related links’ menu:
  • ATIS site to taxi-cab ratio. This information is the formula NSW T&I use to ascertain if additional ATIS sites are required. The basis of the formula or ‘service benchmark’ is worked on the ratio of taxi-cabs to ATIS sites. With the benchmark being 200 taxi-cabs to 1 ATIS sites in metropolitan areas.
  • Complete list of NSW ATIS sites - metropolitan and country.
  • ATIS Manual of Inspection Standards for taxis. The ATIS Manual of Inspection Standards contains the procedures and inspection standards which apply to the operation of all licensed taxis (including maxi-cabs, wheelchair accessible taxis and stand-by taxis). These standards are followed by ATIS examiners during taxi inspections.
