About Us

Australia's Premier monthly magazine for the Point-to-Point Transport Industry – that is taxis, hire cars and ride sourcing entities.

In fact Australia's ONLY magazine for the taxi, hire car and ride sourcing industry.

DRIVE A2B – Voice of the Australian Point-to-Point Transport Industry™ is published monthly and distributed widely to personnel in the Australian taxi, hire car and ride sourcing industry.

DRIVE A2B was born from a need to have a monthly journal collecting, collating and reporting information on the Victorian taxi, hire car and also the ride sourcing industry.

Its inspiration was Taxi Talk magazine – voice of the Victorian taxi industry, which was published from May 1966 to April 2017.

In April 2017 Trade Promotions Pty Ltd, the publisher of Taxi Talk magazine, revisited their ideals, goals and objectives, and believe that to remain competitive and relevant to this industry – the commercial passenger vehicle industry – it was time for Taxi Talk – Voice of the Victorian Taxi Industry to be rebranded.

May 2017 saw Trade Promotions Pty Ltd launch their new magazine – the new Voice of the Victorian Point-to-Point Transport Industry - DRIVE A2B.

September 2018 DRIVE A2B printed its first NATIONAL issue and has started to incorporate more industry information for South Australia, NSW and Queensland.  More States have been invited to come onboard and supply articles to DRIVE A2B on a regular basis.
