Good Tyres Save Lives: We Don’t Cheap Out When It Comes to Safety

Every year when winter sets in, its like drivers forget that the main thing thats going to stop their car safely is the Tyres and the brakes.

How often have you seen a driver cut infront of another driver to save a few seconds and they are slamming on their brakes to avoid hitting them ? We see it all the time whilst doing Airport Transfers to and from Perth Airport.

All to often I’m sure you will agree !

When winter is here and brings the cold damp mornings, its not the rubber that’s going to stop your car but how well it channels the water away with the grooves and grips the road that is going to save you and your loved ones in the vehicle.

On Demand Booking Service Authorised Provider

From the 1st April 2019, Drivers that provide personal transport and or Airport Transfer etc are required to register with the Department Of Transport, their details and collect a 10% Taxi Buy Back Levy fee within their charges to subsidies Taxi’s that are willing to part with their Taxi Plate  ownership.

On-demand passenger transport is the transport of passengers for hire or reward where the passenger or hirer determines the locations for the beginning and end of the journey, as well as the time of travel.

Pricing to increase as per DoT ODBS Fees

Price Changes due to On-Demand Passenger Transport Levy

From 01 April 2019, the WA State government will introduce a 10% On-Demand Passenger Transport Levy on all bookings to fund the Taxi plate buyback scheme.

The WA government has stated in the media that fares should not increase by 10% as operators will have reduced costs from the new legislation. Unfortunately this has not been the case, as not only do drivers and vehicles need to be registered and authorized, booking companies now also need to be authorized and pay additional annual fees.

Whilst every attempt has been made to keep the costs down, as a result of these changes, our prices will increase for all bookings taken from 01 April 2019 onward, but these will be limited to no more than the 10% levy.

 

 

On Demand Booking Service Charges

This 10% will be itemized as an additional line item on tax invoices as we do not see this money but have to pay directly to Department of Transport.

Full details regarding the On Demand Booking Services and Taxi Plate Buy Back Scheme can be found at DoT Omnibus Website

As an authorized charter company, you can be assured you will always receive a safe and reliable journey.

Kwinana Freeway Northbound Widening Russell Road to Roe Highway

Kwinana Freeway Widening

As from 31st October, the Kwinana Freeway Northbound between Russell Road to Roe Highway will begin roadworks to widen from the current two lanes to three lanes.

Whilst this work is in effect, traffic will most probably be reduced to 80Kph and may see lane reductions to just one whilst some work is being done.

As such, My Getaway Driver – Transport Services recommend that passengers travelling to Perth CBD and especially Perth Airport Transfers allow extra time added to their journeys.

My Getaway Driver – Transport Services will undoubtedly try to avoid any roadworks with alternative routes that we can use, our main choice being to use Thomas Road and Tonkin Hwy as indicated.

 

 

Alternative Route for Airport Transfers

 

 

Please note that with the above works being carried out, others will most probably adopt that route as well so expect extra traffic / delays on the alternative route.

So why is this work planned ?

Kwinana Freeway is the main artery servicing the southern section of the Perth Metropolitan Area and the South West. It also forms part of a freight route between Fremantle Port and Perth’s industrial areas.

Significant growth in traffic volumes over recent years has resulted in congestion and flow breakdown on Kwinana Freeway northbound, south of Roe Highway.

Over 75 per cent of crashes on this section of road are potentially dangerous rear-end collisions involving a higher than average proportion of heavy vehicles.

         

What are the rules regarding kids and seatbelts within Rideshare / Omnibus vehicles ?
Let us explain …………………………..
My Getaway Driver operate under the Omnibus rules and regulations and as such, do not have to carry / use child seats within our vehicles when we do Airport Transfers etc
We do however extend to customers that they can use their own childseats within our vehicles and if travelling abroad, these childseats can be kept with us for safe keeping until they return and have the same driver / vehicle and their own childseats waiting for them to use on the return trip.
Under WA law, all drivers and passengers are required to wear a seat belt. Passengers under the age of 16 must be appropriately restrained according to the seatbelt rules of the state.
In WA, on 26th June 2018, the Road Safety Commission is updating the laws regarding child restraints for taxi / Rideshare / omnibus drivers.
Drivers will be responsible for ensuring passengers aged one to seven years old are restrained appropriately in adult seat belts if children seats are not available. Omnibus licence holders will be liable to be penalised if they do not ensure all children under seven are restrained appropriately in their vehicle.
Children under the age of one are able to be held by a caregiver who is over 16 years of age and not in the front seat of the vehicle.
In vehicles with multiple rows of seats, children under the age of seven must sit in the rear of vehicle unless all other seats are filled with other passengers under the age of seven.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to carry seats in my vehicle ?
No. In other cities around the world there are products that do require you to have a child seat but here in Perth these products do not currently exist. If you do have a child seat that you would like to make available to your riders, please store this in the boot of your car so you can still accommodate a full car of adult riders and can access the child seat if/when needed.
What if the Child under 7 refuses to put on the adult seat belt ?
This responsibility falls down to the parents of the child and if the child will not wear the seatbelt or sit still, then due to safety regulations, the trip / booking will have to be terminated.
Under Rideshare / Omnibus regulations, all riders and driver-partners are expected to follow relevant road rules – such as wearing seat belts.
If a rider will not wear a seat belt, remind them that it is a legal requirement and that you cannot drive until their seat belt is securely buckled. If they still refuse to wear a seat belt, the Department Of Transport recommend you cancel the trip. Customers will be liable for the cost of the cancelled trip.

Ten Top Travel Tips

 

Ten Travel Tips

If this is your first time traveling abroad – or maybe you just need a refresher – here’s a list of 10 tips you should do or bring before your trip.

 

Health

  1. Check-in with your Health providers – Doctor, Dentist and insurance cover. Double check and make sure that you have all of the proper vaccinations and that you don’t have any outstanding teeth issues, a lot of our clients recommend QVC Dental Baldivis & Port Kennedy etc and that you have renewed all essential prescriptions.  Also ask your medical insurance provider if your policy applies overseas for emergencies. If it doesn’t, consider adding extra coverage,  consider inexpensive  Post Office Insurance through locally owned and operated Baldivis Post Office owned by Scott, an award winning Post Office.

  2. Take copies of your passport. If your passport gets lost or stolen you want to be sure that you can still get back into the country, or be able to prove your citizenship.
  3. Leave a copy of your passport. For extra backup, leave a copy of your passport at home or with someone you trust. Consider making an electronic copy you can store in your email account as well.

                      Keep up to date with our
                          regular eNewsletter

Money

  1. Make sure your credit card will work in the country you’re visiting. Not all countries accept the outdated magnetic-strip cards. Most have now switched almost completely to the more secure chip-and-PIN technology, if you don’t have a credit card, consider the ultimate travel companion with $0 annual fee from Bankwest. It can even be paired with a Bankwest Halo ring for ease of carrying ( or not carrying as you wear it )
  2. Research your holiday destination before you go – This will make sure you get the full potential of your time in the desired destination, even better is to book with Mobile Travel Agents – Chris Pain who can both guide you through where you are planning on going and give you the best deal and also discuss options at the destination.
  3. Take a Travel charger / adapter – Countries have different size plugs and voltage. So if you want to use your iPod, make sure you can charge it.
  4. Activate your phones global activities – There’s usually a charge for doing this, but it is much less than the roaming charges you’ll get if you don’t. Also consider a PrePaid TravelSIM+

 

Luggage

  1. Pack an extra set of clothes in your carry-on bag – Don’t be one of those travelers decked out in J’adore Paris apparel because the airline lost your luggage and you have nothing else to wear.
  2. To check a bag or not to check bag – Each airline has its own set of guidelines as to how many bags can be checked or carried on for free. Make sure to look up what your airline’s rules are to avoid any incremental fees.
  3. Arrange someone to look out for your home whilst your away – When you are thousands of miles away, the last thing you want is a phone call from a neighbor saying your house has been burgled. Arrange someone to be a designated key holder and clear your post, free newspapers while your away. Also if you live in the City Of Rockingham area, consider the Councils free Holiday Watch program that is available to you.
