We operate within a distinctive sector that provides significant benefits to both the transportation industry and the economy of NSW. We believe operators should have the ability to secure HC plates to support genuine growth in their businesses. Help us build a case to government by registering your interest in securing HC plates (or equivalent alternative).

Our Mission is to fight for your rights as small business owners, and lobby the regulators and government to ensure that your businesses can remain in existence and survive beyond July 2024.

Your membership is key to the successful outcome of these two initiatives.


The vision of the NSW HCA is very simple and clear:

Businessman driving his car on background. Close-up human hand holding gear shift knob
  1. To secure the option of having a uniquely identifiable “badge” (HC plate or otherwise) on unmarked cars with access to bus/transit lanes.
  2. To have a respected voice and a seat at the table with all the authorities who have power over our industry so that we can represent the interests of the industry and provide advocacy for issues that affect us as a whole.


How we go about achieving this vision is very straightforward:

By building strong relationships with government and industry stakeholders

Becoming the go-to body to discuss issues that relate to and affect hire car owners and operators

Building a reputation as an association with vision, integrity, and a realistic approach to changing dynamics.


To become the voice of the industry through strong membership and to make representations of behalf of the industry on issues that affect our industry through collaborative relationships and associations with related private and government organisations. Issues undertaken by the HSW HCA are broad issues that affect all operators across the industry.

The NSW HCA will not become involved in or make representations in relation to issues which affect individual industry or association members. The NSW HCA is not a forum for members to remediate private issues that are best dealt with directly between the involved parties.
