Following the annual review of taxi fares, the maximum fares will increase by an average of 4.51% with effect from Monday 3rd April 2023.
The increase has been calculated in accordance with an established taxi inflation formula (the Halcrow Formula) that takes into account taxi operating costs and average earnings. The fares were last increased in April 2022.
This increase applies to all tariffs. Tariff 1 is for Monday - Friday (7am-10pm) and Saturday/Sunday (7am-7pm). Tariff 2 is for Monday - Friday (10pm-7am), Saturday/Sunday (7pm-7am) and public holidays.
By way of example, following these changes, a 2-mile journey on Tariff 1 will increase by 40p, whereas a 5-mile journey on Tariff 2 will increase by 60p
The minimum fare for all tariffs will remain unchanged.
