Hackney Carriage and private hire licensing: Hackney Carriage fare tariff pdf icon PDF 98 KB

Additional documents:


The Senior Licensing Officer presented the report which highlighted the proposed fees and charges for implementation, as set out in Appendix A of the report.

Members considered the proposed new Hackney Carriage Fare Tariff taking into account the response received following the trade and public consultation which took place between 6 January 2022 and 7 February 2022.

Members discussed the economic implications to taxi drivers through the increase in fuel costs and lack of business through the pandemic.  They also took into account the continued need to provide a safe and cost effective taxi service to the customers.  It was also brought to the Members attention that the taxi drivers would be responsible for the re-calibration of their meters along with any associated costs if the new fares were agreed.

          Resolved:  To agree to the adoption of the new Hackney Carriage Fare Tariff           commencing 1 May 2022 as set out in Appendix A, with the late night hire charge     to continue at 11pm.
