I've had a few riders on the Sunshine Coast ask me to "could you come back later to give me a return ride for cash". When I explained that that they can only get rides from operators who have a Booking Entity Authorisation ( https://personalisedtransport.tmr.qld.gov.au/booking-entity-authorisation ) they seem perplexed. Once I explained these rides are illegal and all insurance coverage etc is off they get it. Several riders have commented the some of our cricket loving drivers are not only touting for a cash return fare, but also handing out cards with their mobile numbers. Yesterday afternoon at the airport 40 km per hour zone I was nearly run off the road by a vehicle screaming up behind me, then sitting right on my bumper, trying to pass. Into the passenger pickup area he scurried, quicker than Sachin Tendulkar diving for his crease, I saw him pick up a nice couple who obviously weren't from his neck of the woods, not a stump nor a cricket bat to be seen, just a few suitcases he started loading. No rideshare sticker displayed and with the boot up could not see his number plate, I went round again and came up behind and got the number plate. To my surprise it was not a rideshare, more to my surprise - he was transporting passengers in a vehicle where the rego had expired! Bad luck if he had an accident, he'd probably be in the first plane back to the motherland, just in time to see the finish Let the games begin!
