The first stage of the Victorian Government's reform of the commercial passenger vehicle industry became law on 23 August 2017.
The Commercial Passenger Vehicle Industry Act 2017 introduces the framework for the new commercial passenger vehicle service levy, which is $1 per commercial passenger vehicle trip.
Stage 2 of the reforms, currently before Parliament, will provide for flexible fares, enabling the industry to charge passengers different prices based on the type of service they provide.
Together, these reforms will see taxi and hire car services, including ride share, operate under an aligned set of rules and create a level playing field for industry participants.
The Victorian Government is yet to announce a start date for the levy. Our website will be updated with more information as it becomes available.
