The Department of State Growth is leading the Tasmanian Government’s Regulatory Review of the Tasmanian Taxi and Hire Vehicle Industries (the Review). Information about the Review can be found at Taxi and Hire Vehicle Industries Regulatory Review.

Taxis are an important part of Tasmania's passenger transport system. Unlike buses, which transport large numbers of people over set routes at regular times, taxis can take up to four passengers (or more in maxi taxis) directly to where they want to go, when they want to go.
