Otago Daily Times - - Regions -

Any­one with a P­en­dorse­ment and a small and/or large pas­sen­ger ser­vice li­cence can carry pas­sen­gers in ve­hi­cles with­out sig­nage.

Driv­ers no longer need to have any lo­cal area knowl­edge or meet English lan­guage re­quire­ments.

Me­ters and panic but­tons no longer re­quired.

In­ve­hi­cle cam­eras are still re­quired for any Queen­stown, Dunedin and In­ver­cargill op­er­a­tors pick­ing up hails or op­er­at­ing from ‘‘ur­ban’’ taxi ranks. ‘‘Dial­a­driv­ers’’ and fa­cil­i­tated cost­share op­er­a­tors, such as TakeMe and Uber, are ex­empt as long as they only pick up ‘‘reg­is­tered pas­sen­gers’’.
