The Changing Industry
In recent years the point-to-point transport market has undergone a metamorphosis like never before. Legislative change, disruptive technology and the proliferation of ride share into the Australian market has created both challenges and benefits for stakeholders.
Governments have battled to deal with rideshare companies such as Uber; and each state has adopted a different approach to this change.
Victoria has opted for a deregulated model, whilst the approach of NSW and Queensland has focused on retaining the status quo with additional rules and regulations for ride share companies.
The sector of the market that has been hit the hardest is those who own a taxi licence.
Investors who leased these licences to taxi operators owned most licences in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. These taxi licence owners have seen the gradual demise of their assets; in Victoria with deregulations these licences have all been extinguished and government now controls them.
P2P Transport does not own any licences and has not been subjected to the losses and devastation faced by many. On the contrary, these changes and the unique business model adopted by P2P Transport have provided an enormous opportunity.
P2P has invested these savings into providing our drivers with a diverse range of vehicle types to choose from and the opportunity to earn more money.
P2P encompasses all vehicle types including:
- Standard taxis
- Luxury silver service taxis
- Wheel chair accessible taxis
- Premium limousines
- Ride share vehicles
Our varied fleet allows a professional driver to choose the most appropriate vehicle for the job at hand.
For example, a P2P professional driver can choose to drive a taxi in the morning, a ride share vehicle in the evening and a corporate car on the weekend. No other operator can provide their drivers with such a choice.
