Information to leave with your Local MP
We can't stop now. It is critical we keep the push going
As you may or may not be aware Transport for NSW are preparing a Bill on further reforms to be introduced into NSW Parliament in early 2022. They are proposing to cancel existing Taxi licences with inadequate compensation and issue unlimited annual licences for a small fee. They are also proposing to remove areas of operation and deregulate fares. The NSW Government deregulation and reform proposals are short-sighted and put at risk the viability of local, small business owners and the delivery of vital services to the community.
The NSW Taxi Council will be submitting the pledges sent by you and signed by the NSW Members of Parliament to the NSW Government to advocate for fair and proper compensation for Taxi Licence Owners in NSW, get the reforms right and enable provision of certainty to communities and customers who rely on Taxis, especially vulnerable user groups across the State and those in regional and rural NSW.
As the peak body for the Taxi industry in NSW we have enjoyed and continue to encourage discussion with all of industry and welcome any ideas and suggestions. Ongoing collaboration showing one united voice is the right way forward.
Visiting your local MP and getting the NSW Taxi Industry pledge signed is the most important and urgent action you can do right now.
As we always say, a chorus sings louder than any one person.
Thank you for being part of that chorus.
