  • Increasing Tariff 2 by 0.6 per cent

  • Extending the fuel charge arrangements until the next taxi fares and tariffs update

  • Increasing by 50 pence the fixed fares for shared taxis from Euston Station (with the exception of the Euston Station to Lords Cricket Ground fare)

The following were also approved: The regulator announced a freezing of Tariff 3 and the rate for journeys over six miles (sometimes referred to as Tariff 4).

Ongoing work and research is being conducted to look at fixed and capped fare schemes to and from Heathrow Airport.
