Have your say on changes to taxi tariffs

Story posted on

Wiltshire Council has opened a public consultation on proposed changes to taxi tariffs throughout the county – and people are being asked to have their say.

Wiltshire Council say, “The proposed new tariffs see small increases on the initial charge for using a taxi and no change to the subsequent charges.

“However, the main change is the length of time that the second tariff tier is active for: previously that ended at 2.29am; now it is proposed that it will start earlier at 10pm instead of 10.30pm and last until 5.59am instead of 2.29am, when the old higher tariff 3 was chargeable. This should encourage more people to use taxis during the early hours, and in turn help to safeguard people as they return home from pubs and clubs.”

Bridget Wayman, cabinet member for transport said, “The current tariffs have been in place since 2015, and following feedback from businesses around the county, this is the right time to make these changes. Please let us know what you think about these changes and have your say by completing the consultation.”

The consultation will until 20th February. People can take the consultation at https://consult.wiltshire.gov.uk/portal/public_health_and_public_protection/hackney_carriage_schedule_of_fares_and_tariffs
