Regulation of For-Hire Passenger Transport: Portugal in International Comparison

Date published: 2016
Research commissioned by: OECD

Why did we select this research?

This study provides input for the ongoing policy-making process to possibly revise regulations that were developed before the arrival of new app-enabled demand-responsive mobility services and platforms in Portugal.

Key findings:

  • Lightening the regulatory controls on entry and fares for dispatched taxi service.
  • Introducing new types of regulation on CTAs than have currently been deployed in most markets.
  • Regulators should increasingly seek to leverage data-led regulation as a way of providing a lighter and more flexible approach to achieving public policy objectives.
