The meter must be engaged for each and every journey, whether the vehicle has been pre-booked or not. The driver cannot charge in excess of this table of fares for any journey with the Selby District.

If the hiring takes the journey outside the District of Selby, the driver cannot charge more than this table of fares allows unless a fare has been agreed with the hirer before the commencement of the journey.

These are maximum charges and drivers are permitted to negotiate a fare provided they do not charge any more than the table of fares allows.

 

Attention is drawn to the provisions of Section 65 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976, copies of which are deposited at the offices of the Council until the 1 April 2019.

 

Any objections to the proposed increase in Hackney Carriage Tariff fares may be made in writing by the 1 April 2019 to:  Taxi Licensing Team, Civic Centre, Doncaster Road, Selby, YO8 9FT or by email to licensing@selby.gov.uk

 

If no objections are received or are received but later withdrawn, the new table of fares will apply with effect from 1 April 2019.
