Feedback invited for transport review

Start the conversation

The Department for Infrastructure and Transport (DIT) is seeking feedback on how point to point transport should be regulated.

In a statement, DIT said a review is to be held on improving the regulatory standards of all taxis and ridesource (rideshare) operators to help ensure South Australians can expect a safe, clean and reliable ride, regardless of which transport provider they choose.

The Department said feedback would help shape the future of point to point transport under the Passenger Transport Act 1994.

“Point to point transport is any service in a vehicle with 12 seats or less (including the driver) that can take customers on the route they choose, at the time that suits them, for a fare,” it said.

“This includes taxis, chauffeurs and ridesourcing (rideshare).”

DIT said it was looking to gather a range of feedback on customer experiences travelling around the community using taxi, chauffeur and/or ridesourcing (rideshare) point to point transport services and driver, licence owner and operator experiences in providing point to point transport services.

“The Government will consider all feedback provided to inform the next steps for the industry,” it said.

The Department said feedback could be provided either via the Passenger Transport Act Review Survey, which would take about 20 minutes to complete, or by written submission by the closing date of 1 August.

The survey can be accessed on the yourSAy website at this PS News link.
