 PTV equipment and modification requirements

The standards that apply to a vehicle vary depending on the type of service being provided

 PTV inspections

 Camera surveillance units

Camera surveillance units (CSUs) help ensure passenger and driver safety in passenger transport vehicles (PTVs). All on-demand rank or hail PTVs (taxis) in WA must have a suitable type of CSU installed. CSUs are optional in all other types of PTVs.
