Final decision and price determinationSeptember 2020
We are required to review and set the maximum fares that commercial passenger vehicles can charge for unbooked trips every two years.
The maximum fares for unbooked trips apply to trips that begin in the metro and urban zones, which cover most of metropolitan Melbourne, Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo, Frankston, Dandenong and the Mornington Peninsula.
Our objective under the Commercial Passenger Vehicle Industry Act for determining maximum fares is to promote the efficient provision and use of taxis. This objective complements our objective under the Essential Services Commission Act, which is to promote the long term interests of Victorian consumers.

We have issued a consultation paper in April 2020. The aim of the paper is to give stakeholders the background information they might need to provide their views on taxi fares.
