Wikipedia: Taxi Services Commission
The Taxi Services Commission (the TSC or the Commission) is the Government agency responsible for the regulation of the taxi and hire car industries in the State of Victoria, Australia. Before becoming a regulator, the Commission was responsible for conducting a major independent inquiry, the Taxi Industry Inquiry, into taxi and other small commercial passenger vehicle services.
The TSC was created as a statutory corporation by the Transport Legislation Amendment (Taxi Services Reform and Other Matters) Act 2011, which amended the State's prime transport statute, the Transport Integration Act 2010, and the Transport (Compliance and Miscellaneous) Act 1983.
The Commission commenced operation in its initial inquiry phase on 19 July 2011. The agency became the State's ongoing taxi regulator in place of the Victorian Taxi Directorate on 1 July 2013, chaired by former ACCC Chairman and Australian businessman Graeme Samuel
Pros and cons of public transport
Comfortable taxi services between cities are relatively new service. Suddenly, a few years such services in general have meaning and application, since the frequency of flights is higher, so the need for transport is also larger. With such journeys are mainly used by businessmen who have to attend to important matters and want to travel in comfort.
An important business meeting requires punctuality, so public transport is out for several reasons. Firstly, the timetable, which makes it impossible to get on the given place at a given time. Secondly, we have no way of getting in a specific place, we limit stops, which still somehow have to get to the meeting place. Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, this type of transport does not guarantee us that we reach the place of the allotted time.
Taxi trips abroad are quite expensive, but nevertheless it is a very needed service on the market, which of course is in demand. The most common option to travel by taxi abroad choose businessmen or traveling, and most often, chosen aim is the airport.
As is well known Polish airports do not support all lines and directions, so sometimes come out cheaper to get a taxi to the international airport and it have a direct flight to the country of interest to us.
