Victoria’s new Taxi Services Commission (TSC) has acted on a Report recommendation, seeking to establish a solution to hold performance data relating to taxi networks and operators. In September 2012, a Report by Professor Allan Fels found that there was “poor availability of accurate, reliable and timely data in critical areas of concern” in regards to Victorian taxis. He recommended that there be “A data warehouse capable of collecting, storing, analysing and reporting on all commercial passenger vehicle industry data provided from taxi cabs and Authorised Taxi Organisations”. TSC is seeking software and hardware to support a data-warehouse capable of storing and reporting on up to 35 million trips per annum in Victoria. The data will be required to be stored for a maximum of 15 years and will be available to the community on, at least, a monthly basis.
