Today, the New South Wales Government made history by becoming the first State in Australia to introduce ridesharing regulations.
This important step forward is an incredible reflection of the way Sydneysiders have embraced ridesharing over the past 18 months. Thanks to the support of half a million Sydney uberX riders and over 5,500 driver-partners, the Government has recognised your right to choose how you get around your city and to access flexible work that fits around your life.
We applaud the Government’s leadership in listening to the people of New South Wales and embracing the future. Ridesharing is not only revolutionising the transportation status quo but also helping make Sydney a more economically vibrant, better connected and more sustainable city.
Thank you, Sydney. This is just the beginning.
