Taxi fares consultation

A public consultation into taxi fares in the Borders is now open.

As the licensing authority, we are required to fix scales for fares and other charges and review them every 18 months.

After considering feedback by taxi operators, Councillors on the Executive Committee on Tuesday 17 October agreed that no increase in the fares should be introduced, with the public now able to have their say.

How to take part?

  • The proposed fare scales are available to view online
  • You can then send your comments online or in writing to Mr B Frater, Service Director Regulatory Services, Scottish Borders Council, Newtown St Boswells, Melrose, TD6 0SA.

The deadline for responses is 24 November.

Further information

We will consider all consultation responses before the new fares are set.
