Passenger Transport Legislation
The Passenger Transport Services Act 2011 and the Passenger Transport Services Regulations 2013 commenced on 1 July 2013. This legislation implements the key recommendations of the Passenger Transport Act Review.
The Restricted Hire Vehicle Industry Regulations 2013 also commenced on that date.
The Department of State Growth is leading the Tasmanian Government’s Regulatory Review of the Tasmanian Taxi and Hire Vehicle Industries (the Review). The Tasmanian Government committed to the Review in late 2015 as part of the Government’s policy for embracing the sharing economy, which has included supporting the entry to Tasmania of new ride-sourcing services like Uber.
