Taxi fares rise in Allerdale set to be ditched

A planned increase in taxi fares in Allerdale looks set to be scrapped after an objection from the trade.

Allerdale council agreed in March to increase the fee for the first mile of a journey from £2.90 to £3.

After the decision, Davies Taxis of Keswick contacted the council to say that the minimal financial gain from the change was not enough to justify the cost of having taxi meters recalibrated.

The council’s licensing committee has now recommended that the tariff should be kept at the original price.
