Personalised transport services
The personalised transport industry, including taxis, limousines and ride-booking services (known as booked hire services), plays an essential role in the wider passenger transport system by providing personalised, door-to-door services.
The Queensland Government introduced a legislative framework in 2017 and continues to monitor, review and evaluate this framework.
Taxi, limousine and ride-booking businesses must comply with the personalised transport legislation, industry standards, guidelines and requirements that have been developed in Queensland.
