Taxi tariff rates and minimum fare

1. Please let us know what you think of the current taxi tariffs and minimum fare.
Minimum fare (currently £3.00 at all times)
Tariff 1 (Monday to Friday 05:00 - 20:00)
Tariff 2 (Monday to Friday 20:00 - 22:00 & Saturday and Sunday 05:00 - 22:00)
Tariff 3 (every night 22:00 - 05:00 & public holidays)
Tariff 4 (Taxi fares for journeys over six miles)
2. Do you agree or disagree that when we review taxi fares and tariffs we should try to balance taxi drivers’ costs increasing against taxi fares not becoming too expensive so as people are deterred from using taxis?

If you disagree, please say why.

3. Do you agree or disagree with our proposals for the minimum taxi fare and tariff rates?

Minimum fare increasing by 20 pence (6.7%) taking this from £3.00 to £3.20
