The regulation of the small public service vehicle (SPSV) industry, including issues pertaining to vehicle standards and age limits, is a matter for the National Transport Authority (NTA) under the provisions of the Taxi Regulation Act 2013. I have therefore referred your question to the NTA for direct reply to you. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within 10 working days.
