Residents asked to voice their opinions on taxi services

Views of residents are being sought to help improve licenced taxi services across the district.

From the ability to obtain the services of a licenced vehicle to issues which prevent taxi use, to opinions on the driver application criteria, a new consultation has been launched to gauge public opinion on the operation of licenced drivers in the district.

Lancaster City Council is responsible for the Licensing of Taxi and Private Hire Drivers, Vehicles and Operators and is reviewing application standards and procedures to address the shortage of licenced drivers in the area.

Responses received through the consultation will help inform the review, which aims to break down some of the perceived barriers for people entering the trade and make the process of becoming a taxi driver more streamlined and efficient.

The consultation can be found at

It closes on October 30.
