Information for drivers and operators of buses and coaches that have 13 seats or MORE.
If your vehicles have fewer seats please see the Point to Point Transport Commission.
The Point to Point Transport (Taxis and Hire Vehicles) Act 2016 (the Act) and Point to Point Transport (Taxis and Hire Vehicles) Regulation 2017 (the Regulation) provides the regulatory framework for passenger services undertaken in any vehicle with 12 seats or less (including the driver).
An operator or a small vehicle service operating under contract with Transport for NSW will continue until the release of the new Passenger Transport Regulation.
In this section...
All operators of buses holding MORE than 13 seats must be authorised under the Passenger Transport Act 1990 or 2014. (The 1990 Act will expire with the enactment of the new Passenger Transport Regulation in the near future.)
