Taxi chief wants to make Queensland services 'world class' The Chronicle
Attracting more drivers from a broader cross-section of the community - including semi-retired people and women – is part of a bold campaign by Taxi Council Queensland to create the world’s best taxi service, according to chief executive officer Benjamin Wash.
The following statement is attributed to Benjamin Wash, CEO, Taxi Council Queensland:
Taxi Council Queensland congratulates Neil Scales on his appointment as Director General of Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads. We recognise the excellent contribution he has made to the state’s transport industry in his previous roles with Translink and as acting Director General. The taxi industry plays a vital and unique role in the overall transport network, with over a quarter of a million people daily across Queensland relying on taxis for safe, door-to-door transport. We value our close working relationship with the Minister and the department and equally look forward to working proactively with Mr Scales, for the benefit of all Queenslanders.
