Due to the seasonal nature of the passenger transport industry, PTV authorisation numbers naturally fluctuate between months.

PTVs can be authorised in multiple categories, therefore the total number of authorised PTVs is not equal to the sum of on-demand charter (OD-C) and on-demand rank or hail (OD-RH) PTVs.
