The amount applied should be calculated from one of the following points (whichever is the nearer to the pick-up point):-

Registered address of the vehicle proprietor;

The point where the vehicle is parked when taking the booking (e.g. rank);

The address of the booking office that the journey was booked through.

Soiling Charge

A maximum soiling charge of £50.00 is payable to cover cleaning the vehicle and loss of earnings when a passenger(s) soils a vehicle by whatever means.

The meter must be engaged for each and every journey, whether the vehicle has been pre-booked or not. The driver cannot charge in excess of this table of fares for any journey with the Craven District.

If the hiring takes the journey outside the District of Craven, the driver cannot charge more than this table of fares allows unless a fare has been agreed with the hirer before the commencement of the journey.

These are maximum charges and drivers are permitted to negotiate a fare provided they do not charge any more than the table of fares allows.

It is proposed that the above fares and charges will take effect from 19 October 2018.

Should any person wish to make objections to the above fares and charges taking effect, they should put their objections in writing addressed to the person named below, as soon as practicable, and in any case before 18 October 2018.
