The latest report of a female passenger allegedly suffering a sexual assault by an Uber driver has brought
the Taxi Council of Queensland (TCQ) out swinging, demanding the Queensland Government act
immediately and do more to ensure the safety of passengers.
The Taxi Council of Queensland (TCQ) is concerned that while Uber is pricing its services to win over consumers, an analysis of the booked-hire company’s financial position shows it is yet to turn a profit and if it continues to grow its market share, consumers will be the losers in the end.
South Australia's taxi plate compensation payments could increase by $10,000 to $40,000 per license following the upcoming state election. SA Best leader Nick Xenophon said the party will push for a series of relief measures to help taxi operators and drivers, who are struggling financially because of the introduction of Uber.
