Following a successful review of the taxi permit applications by the Taxi Permit Independent Review Committee, the LTA has notified applicants on their application status by post and e-mails.

The LTA had called for taxi permit applications for the Nadi 1, Nadi 2 and Lautoka 1 transport zones from  May 31 in accordance with the Land Transport (Public Service Vehicles) (Amendment) Regulations 2017.
