Taxi Council slams Government “race to bottom” approach https://t.co/m5sp8LV8TZ

Taxi Council slams Government “race to bottom” approach Taxi Council Queensland (TCQ) says taxi companies across the state still offer drivers high levels of training despite the State Government removing this requirement in its recent regulatory changes. TCQ Chief Executive Officer Benjamin Wash says the Government’s changes were a poorly thought out attempt to level the playing field in order to accommodate rideshare, with the result being lower service standards and the removal of consumer protection. He said rideshare companies don’t have to adhere to any standards and can “basically do what they like”. “The taxi industry did not ask for and does not want lowering of standards. “The big question is whether the Government will continue to allow rideshare vehicles to operate with no guidelines whatsoever, putting public safety at risk.”
