Monitoring Reports

The Transport (Compliance and Miscellaneous) Act 1983 sets out a notification, publication and monitoring regime that applies to taxi fares in the Regional and Country taxi zones. Taxi operators and networks in these zones are able to set their own taxi fares, notified under a Price Notification System (administered by the Taxi Services Commission).

The Essential Service Commission’s role is to monitor and report on regional and country taxi fares, and to bring any evidence of potential misuse of market power to the attention of the Government. The monitoring regime keeps Victorian consumers and the Government informed about the economic performance of the taxi industry in the Regional and Country taxi zones, and supports the efficient operation of the industry.
