Taxi Fare Review 2020

Closes 27 Feb 2020

Opened 29 Jan 2020

Overview

The City of Edinburgh Council reviews taxi fares every 18 months and must consult on any proposals to change the taxi fare tariff.

The suggested new taxi tariff includes the following changes:

  • an increase of 40p on the initial charge (all tariffs)
  • an additional increase of 3.3% on increments thereafter (Tariffs 1 & 2)
  • the 'additional passenger charge' to increase to 30p

In addition the wording relating to 'soiling' and the Christmas and New Year periods has been amended for clarification, and the charges relating to the airport have been updated.

Why We Are Consulting

The Council must consult on proposals to change the taxi fare tariff, so that a new fare table can come into effect on 7 April 2020.

A copy of the proposed new taxi tariff is available below. If you would like to make any comments about these proposals please email licensing@edinburgh.gov.uk or write to:
