Written answers (Question to Transport)

The National Transport Authority (NTA), as the statutory regulator for the SPSV sector under the Taxi Regulation Act 2013, has published information for the SPSV industry on COVID-19 which includes guidelines in relation to the installation of temporary dividing screens. This information is available on the NTA's website.

Given the role of the NTA as regulator, I have referred the Deputies' question to the Authority for direct reply to you. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within 10 working days.
