Fair and equitable compensation for taxi plate owners.

Canberra taxi investors seek compensation from ACT Government

Mrs Blinman says their savings have been decimated because of changes made to the ACT government’s system for licensing taxis.


The government allocates “plates” – the right to operate a taxi – to operators for a fee. Two years ago, it decided to release another 50 plates, at a cost of $5,000 a year to lease. The ACT Labor Government just released another 30.

 Narelle Blinman, has to keep working at the age of 75 because the investment has crashed

Mrs Blinman says this means the five plates she and her husband bought to be their superannuation have now become worth a fraction of their former value.


The cost of owning the right to run a taxi is falling fast, and that means those who bought earlier at much higher prices are struggling.
