We undertook a review of Victorian taxi fares and made recommendations for setting taxi fares over the period from 1 July 2014.
Taxi fare review 2013
We set maximum fares for taxi services for the metropolitan Melbourne and the 'urban and large regional' taxi zones. We made our taxi fare determination for these taxi zones on 19 June 2014.
We determined that the fare levels for these zones would not change from what we recommended in March 2014 and were implemented by the Victorian Government on 19 May 2014.
The determination is based on our taxi fare review (completed in March 2014). We undertook extensive consultation with stakeholders as part of the review, meeting with taxi operators (of various fleet size), drivers, industry and consumer groups, network service providers, and meter providers. We released a number of papers as part of the review, on which we invited and received submissions from stakeholders. We also undertook driver and operator surveys to inform our final recommendations.
The determination takes effect from 1 July 2014.
