A north-east council has announced there will be no changes to standard rates for taxi fares following a review.
Aberdeenshire Council has revealed there will be no changes to standard rates, £2.60, other than late night charges, £3.60, applying on two additional days of the year.
Fares have to be reviewed every 18 months and the council’s licensing sub-committee decided after the most recent review to make only minimal changes.
Rates remain the same, other than to make the late night fare apply throughout the day on January 3 and the May Day public holiday.
The revised fare scale comes into force from November 1.
Charges for the use of debit/credit cards will also be removed from this date.
Taxi operators were asked for their views as part of the most recent review prior to the decision by the committee.
