Taxi and passenger transport

Each year passengers take more than eight million trips in Adelaide using personalised or point to point passenger transport services, where a driver and vehicle are provided to transport customers on the route they choose, at a time that suits them.

The State government is responsible for ensuring that all passenger transport drivers, vehicles and services operate in accordance with the Passenger Transport Act 1994 and Passenger Transport Regulations 2009.

Accreditation of these services is assessed by the Department of Planning and Transport (DPTI), through the Accreditation and Licensing Centre, which ensures appropriate standards of customer service and stringent safety requirements are in place.

Passenger service accreditation

The purpose of accreditation is to ensure that safety, efficiency and competency standards are met.

There are different standards and requirements for operators, drivers and vehicles depending on the type of passenger transport service being provided.

In some cases, you may need accreditation as both an operator and a driver.

In all instances, the operator is responsible for the vehicle or vehicles used for a passenger transport service. This includes arranging vehicle inspections and insuring the vehicle for passenger transport.
