Proposed increase to Taxi Fares

Closed 21 Jul 2022

Opened 7 Jul 2022


The Council is responsible for setting the maximum fares that hackney carriages (taxis) can charge for journeys. Charges that hackney carriage drivers can make include distance as well as carrying luggage and other services which are listed on the fare card. 

Due to increasing fuel and vehicle operating costs, drivers have asked that we review the fares. The last review of fares took place in 2016.
