Background Information: The Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976 allows us to govern fares charged by Hackney Carriage vehicles for certain journeys. Fares include charges for distance traveled and waiting time. There are three tariffs for distance, depending on the time of day and day of the week. In previous years, it was agreed that increase in Tariffs within the Fare be increased by Consumer price inflation in March. However, in the last three years we have received queries from the trade in regards to increasing fare prices in alternative manner and also for the council to look at making changes to Extra charges charged.
