WA Government introduces 10% levy on rides

From 1 April 19, the WA Government will require all taxi, rideshare and hire car providers to pay a 10% levy for each ride taken.

This means you will be charged an additional 10% on every completed trip (to a maximum of $10 per trip) that will start and end in the Perth metropolitan, Mandurah or Murray areas.

This additional charge will be shown as a ‘Passenger Transport Levy’ on your email trip receipt and within the ‘Your Rides’ section in your app.

For trips taken in fully electric vehicles (which are exempt from the levy) a refund will automatically be processed.
