Disclaimer

From 1 November 2017, the Point to Point Transport Act 2016 and Point to Point Transport Regulation 2017 provided a new regulatory framework for passenger services undertaken in any vehicle with 12 seats or less (including the driver). These include taxis, private hire vehicles (including ride sharing) and some buses. More information on point to point transport is available at www.pointtopoint.nsw.gov.au.
