Shortly about 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 taxi
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.
While abroad, you need to prepare for travel between airports. It is best to arrange a suitable transport before the visit to the country. This will save a lot of unnecessary stress and matting. It is best to start your search by finding the right company on the Internet, many of them have in their offer transportation throughout the country, and in particular airports in major cities.
You can not forget to bring the relevant currency, because it can happen failure of the payment terminal and you will have to pay in cash. Fortunately, most of the drivers speak English, so if you also speak with it, you'll get in agreement easly. Traveling to another country does not have to be associated with stressful situations, if you are properly prepared.
