Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) chairman Peter Boxall has said there are likely to be changes to proposed taxi reforms based on feedback at a western NSW meeting on Tuesday.

Operators and drivers from across the region attended the IPART hearing at Dubbo where they had the opportunity to comment on a draft proposal to increase the number of taxi licences in regional areas and freeze fares for most major centres.
