Taxis and private hire vehicles

June 23, 2011 · Posted in Business & Local Economy, Roads & Transport 

As of June 2011, there are 54 taxis and 128 private hire vehicles operating in our district. Taxies have to be white. As soon as a taxi is flagged down they can start to charge. If the roof box is lit then you can flag down the taxi anywhere. It doesn’t have to be at a taxi rank. A private hire vehicle can be any colour except white. You cannot flag them down, they have to be pre-booked in advance. You should agree a price with them before they pick you up and they should have a roof box on top when being used as a taxi.
