Taxi fares 2021/22 consultation

The Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976 allows us to impose certain charges for hackney carriage and private hire licensing.

Fares include charges for distance travelled and waiting time. There are three tariffs for distance, depending on the time of day and day of the week.

We propose to increase fares by 0.9% on 1 April 2021. This translates into a 5p increase (as a rounded figure) on the base fare across all tariffs.

If you have any objections to this, send them to us at taxi@cambridge.gov.uk by midnight on 28 March 2021.

If no objections to the proposal are made, or if all objections are withdrawn, the revised fares will come into operation on 1 April 2021.
