Our Vision

Enhancing the mobility and well-being of the Australian community.
We do this through efficient, safe, reliable, on-demand, door-to-door services and the media.

The Australian Taxi Industry Association

The Australian Taxi Industry Association (ATIA) was formed by State and Territory based industry associations to represent the Australian Taxi Services Industry on national issues.

Since its formation, the ATIA has been an effective voice articulating the industry’s position and working with the Federal Government and its agencies to find workable solutions to legislative, regulatory and policy matters.

ATIA advocates that a strong and viable industry is best placed to develop and implement efficiency innovations that maximise the contribution of taxi services for a safe and effective public transport system. Taxi services are anywhere-to-anywhere personalised transport solutions that can both substitute for, or integrate with bus, rail and tram services.

The Executive Committee of the ATIA meets regularly to discuss issues and opportunities, and holds an annual conference to brief the Industry on progress and outcomes.


The ATIA is committed to the following:

  • Conducting an ongoing audit of legislation and regulatory changes across Australia to protect the interests of industry members.
  • Facilitating the development of quality taxi services across Australia by liaising with government and the media.
  • Encouraging practices aimed at further improving the safety, security and well-being of all participants in the supply chain for taxi services.
  • Promoting innovations within the industry that improve the efficiency, accessibility, and sustainability of taxi services.
  • Ensuring the dissemination of critical information to the industry through communications and education programs.
  • Hosting the annual ATIA International Taxi Conference to ensure the latest product and service developments and opportunities are available to the Industry.
