All we want is a level playing field.

Rideshare services such as Uber continue to operate with little regard for community safety. They also offer limited access to vulnerable Queenslanders and people in regional areas.

The impact these service are having on Queensland taxi owners and drivers will likely lead to a reduction in transport services available with disabilities and special needs.

At the same time, rideshare services operate outside the regulations which apply to taxis, which exist to keep people – both passengers and drivers – safe.

All KAP wants is a level playing field. We want laws that ensure rideshare operators like Uber must comply with the same safety standards and service levels that exist for taxis.
