BACKGROUND

Submissions closed midnight 17 February 2020.

On 28 October 2019, Council resolved to endorse the public exhibition of the Draft North Sydney Council Draft Taxi and Ride Sourcing Strategy and Action Plan.

The Draft Strategy and Action Plan has been developed to review the current provision of taxi ranks within the North Sydney LGA and identify gaps between the provision and demand for taxi and ride sourcing parking facilities.

It also identifies opportunities to increase taxi spaces and introduce new spaces for ride sourcing in high demand areas, while reducing the number of taxi zone spaces in lower demand areas.

The strategy maps land uses which are likely to generate the highest demand for taxi and ride sharing (see Key trip generations in the North Sydney LGA available in the document library).

It identifies the existing taxi ranks in the North Sydney LGA (see Existing taxi ranks in North Sydney LGA available in the document library). Drop-off and pick-up statistics for the North Sydney LGA from one major ride sourcing company was also compared and produced similar findings to Council’s analysis.

The Draft Strategy and Action Plan (and accompanying Council report) and can be viewed in the document library.
