Taxi Industry Innovation Review Support Analysis: This analysis paper provides analysis and information that provides context for the Government’s taxi industry innovation reforms.
2015 Taxi Innovation Review | Aerial Capital Group Submission: ACGL's calls upon the Minister to use the outcomes of the 2015 Taxi Review to formulate evidence based evaluation of the costs and benefits of making any changes to existing Taxi legislation.
Given the potential financial impact and harm associated with implementation of the views proposed in the review document, ACGL asks that every effort be made to ensure wide ranging support for change. The Government has invested significantly for over 30 years in 10 previous taxi reviews resulting in the current regulatory system that offers the best mix of technology, service and infrastructure for the Canberra market. Changing this mix towards a greater focus on deregulation will have wide-ranging impacts upon community safety and service levels. This paper outlines these impacts and ACGL draws on our experience in the NZ deregulated taxi market. It is incumbent upon Government to fully consider, cost and mitigate these impacts.The community have the right to an a priori assessment of this analysis and cost.
