Under section 12(1) of the Transport Operations (Passenger Transport) Act 1994, all operators of public passenger services must attain and maintain Operator Accreditation in order to provide public passenger services in Queensland. This requirement extends to individuals, partnerships and corporations.
The purpose of Operator Accreditation is to ensure operators are aware of, and accountable for:
- the provision of safe passenger transport services
- the management of their drivers
- high levels of service
- complying with the legislative standards.
A public passenger service:
- provides a transport service for fare or other considerations, or
- provides a transport service in the course of a trade or business (but not if it is provided by an employer solely for employees), or
- provides a transport service for the community or as a courtesy.
