Taxi vs the ride-sharing app

The introduction of ride-sharing companies like Uber has created new challenges for transport law.

While Uber has created a new travel option, it also raises questions about where it should fit within the current taxi regulations. This is the subject of the petition from Wayne Branks and Upesh Patel currently before the Transport and Industrial Relations Committee.

The committee will consider the petition at its meeting on 11 August 2016.
