Point to point transport includes all flexible transport services 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. Point to Point transport includes:
* Hire cars
* Tourist services
* Community transport
* Rideshare services (Roam)
In NSW, there are two categories of service providers - these are companies that can legally receive bookings and despatch them to drivers:
* Taxi service providers
* Booking service providers (Roam)
Upfront fare estimates
All booking service providers must provide you with an upfront fare estimate before your trip commences.
If your driver asks, you’ll need to pay an upfront fare before the trip begins, and either pay the balance or receive a refund at the end of the trip.
Passenger Service Levy
All point to point transport service providers need to pay a temporary $1 Passenger Service Levy on all trips (including taxi, hire car and rideshare) taken in NSW, to help people like mums and dads and retirees who have put their lifetime savings into the industry and are now doing it tough. The levy is funding an industry adjustment assistance package.
