Changes to the point to point industry
The metropolitan Adelaide boundary
The South Australian Government has expanded the metropolitan Adelaide boundary under the Passenger Transport Act 1994 to include the Adelaide Hills and Mount Barker Council areas.
Metropolitan taxis, chauffeur, and ridesource (rideshare) services can now operate in the Adelaide Hills and Mount Barker Council areas. These changes are being implemented with the aim of increasing service availability for tourists and locals in low travel density zones.
Country-based taxi and chauffeur operators are able to continue to operate in the Adelaide Hills and Mount Barker Council areas in the same way that they do currently, including by providing point to point services in the new area.

Access taxi services
The increased lifting fee payable on a broader category of trips seeks to improve service delivery through reduced wait times and improved services for access taxi customers.
