The regulation of the taxi industry, including coordination of enforcement activities, is a matter in the first instance for the National Transport Authority (NTA) under the Taxi Regulation Act, 2003. I have arranged for your question to be forwarded to the NTA for a direct response. If you do not receive a response within ten working days, please notify my private office.

The position in regard to enforcement in the small public service vehicles (SPSV) sector was examined during the recent review of the taxi industry - see section 3.5 of the Taxi Regulation Review Report which is available on my Department's website.
