The Commercial Passenger Vehicle Industry Act 2017 became law on 23 August 2017. It is the first stage of the Victorian Government's reform of the commercial passenger vehicle industry.
The Act introduces the framework for the new commercial passenger vehicle service levy, which is $1 per commercial passenger vehicle trip.
Stage 2 of the reforms will require legislation to allow for flexible fares, enabling the industry to charge passengers differentiated prices based on the type of service they provide.
Together, these reforms will see taxi and hire car, including ride share, services operate under an aligned set of rules and create a level playing field for industry participants.
Our role with the levy
