The Essential Services Commission determines the maximum surcharge that can be collected when someone pays for a taxi using any method other than cash. We are reviewing this surcharge.

Non-cash payment transactions include those made by credit card, charge card, and debit card. Cabcharge cards and dockets are also considered non-cash payment methods.

The current maximum surcharge is five per cent. View more detail on our website.

We are currently preparing our draft decision using the input we received on our consultation paper. Stakeholders will have another opportunity to share their views when we release our draft decision in May.

If you have any questions about the review please call 03 9032 1300.
