Whilst the battle for the regulation and legislation of ridesharing services like Uber has been fought mainly in state parliaments around the country, in Victoria the legalities of the service have been vetted through the court system.
“We are delighted that our driver-partner Mr Brenner won his appeal today in the the County Court of Victoria, and was awarded costs.”“The time for excuses is over. The Andrews Government needs to listen to the hundreds of thousands of Victorians who are choosing ridesharing every week and introduce sensible, safety-based regulations without delay.”
Uber is currently legal in New South Wales, Western Australia, and the ACT. But both South Australia and Queensland remain doggedly opposed to the service.
