Consultation on small passenger services review

The Ministry of Transport sought feedback on a consultation paper about the future of small passenger services in New Zealand. Small passenger services include taxi, private hire, shuttles, dial-a-driver, ridesharing and carpooling services.

Earlier in 2015, the Ministry of Transport’s small passenger services review delivered advice to Hon Craig Foss, Associate Minister of Transport. Ministers of Transport have decided that before they make any decisions on the future of the small passenger services sector, public consultation should take place.

The Ministry of Transport released a consultation paper that sets out the policy options for the future, and the issues surrounding the options.

Submissions closed on Friday 12 February 2016.
