Coronavirus (COVID-19): taxis and PHVs
Coronavirus – face coverings
The Government has mandated the wearing of face coverings in taxis and PHVs. All passengers travelling in taxis and PHVs are legally required to wear a face covering at all times when in the taxi or PHV, unless they are exempt from doing so.
TRDC continues to expect licensees to wear a face covering at all times when in a licensed vehicle, unless they are exempt from doing so. This is to keep both drivers and passengers safe.
