The proposed fares are shown in the table below
Representations have been received from the taxi trade and consultees on the proposals.
Of course, no one wants to see increased costs and it could equally be argued that an argument bourne on the cost of fuel could be countered with an argument that the operators should be looking to move to EV which would be cleaner and reduce their operating costs. Perhaps the capital costs are prohibitive?
What do you think about an increase in the proposed taxi fares? Would you be happy to pay the increase or do you think they are already expensive enough?
