Variation to Isle of Wight Council Hackney Carriage Table of Fares

Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976 Section 65

The Isle of Wight Council’s Licensing Committee determined on 28 January 2019 to vary the existing Hackney Carriage Table of Fares.


The amendments to the existing Table of Fares are:

  • To remove the credit card surcharge;
  • Increase the Flag drop for tariff 1 from £3.00 to £3.50
  • Increase the cost per mile of tariff 1 from £1.80 to £1.90
  • Alter the start time for tariff 2 from 22:00 hours to 20:00 hours.

The above legislation requires the Isle of Wight Council to advertise any variations made to the Table of Fares. If any objections are received that relate to the proposed amendments, then the council will consider them and determine whether to proceed or amend and/or delete the proposed change.
