Point to Point Transport Commissioner interviewed by BloombergNEF

Q: How has the taxi industry changed or what changes do you expect?

A: The taxi industry hasn’t really seen a significant dip into their market share. I mentioned that more people are using point-to-point transport. Surveys indicate that people are still catching taxis and they’re still catching them as frequently as they were before. Really, the market has grown overall.

Conclusion from NSW taxi owners in the industry

Comments made in the interview by Ms Wise,  Point to Point Transport Commissioner interviewed by BloombergNEF simply does not represent reality and compensation must be provided for financial losses to their assets, not just their income.
