Taxi Deregulation: Victoria’s Commercial Passenger Vehicle Reforms This month’s talk is from Megan Bourke-O’Neil and Paul Salter who will discuss Victoria’s Commercial Passenger Vehicle Reforms.


Synopsis  The entry of ride-sharing and other on-demand and accessible transport models into the Victorian market has driven disruption in the commercial passenger transport sector, and presented a significant challenge for regulators.
