Changes to the point to point industry

The metropolitan Adelaide boundary

The South Australian Government has expanded the metropolitan Adelaide boundary under the Passenger Transport Act 1994 to include the Adelaide Hills and Mount Barker Council areas.

Metropolitan taxis, chauffeur, and ridesource (rideshare) services can now operate in the Adelaide Hills and Mount Barker Council areas. These changes are being implemented with the aim of increasing service availability for tourists and locals in low travel density zones.

Country-based taxi and chauffeur operators are able to continue to operate in the Adelaide Hills and Mount Barker Council areas in the same way that they do currently, including by providing point to point services in the new area.

More information is available in the fact sheets below for metropolitan and non-metropolitan service providers:

Access taxi services

The South Australian Government will now pay a lifting fee of $25 plus GST to drivers for all 50, 75 and 100% SATSS trips booked through the access taxi centralised booking service. This replaces the on-time bonus previously payable to the driver and the $10 lifting fee that previously applied to 75 and 100% SATSS trips.

The increased lifting fee payable on a broader category of trips seeks to improve service delivery through reduced wait times and improved services for access taxi customers.
