Ride Share Rule Making Regional Travel Tricky


Uber claims that State Government rules are locking them out of operating in regional areas.

The major rideshare company has told the Courier that a current trial underway by the State Govenment is too cost and time prohibitive for drivers.

If a rideshare driver wanted to go further than Bridgewater on the South Eastern Freeway for a job, they would be required to have dual accreditation for regional and metro areas to do so.

New South Wales and Victoria have one state-wide system each.

The State Government has not outlined when their current trial will end.
