NEW RANK-ING: Kirkcaldy’s taxi drivers handed two new cab ranks in key locations


To help shoppers in Kirkcaldy there are now two new taxi ranks in the town.


Earlier this year, Kirkcaldy Area Committee approved a new taxi rank on St Clair Street, outside Rejects Department Store. This replaces the taxi rank on Cromarty Place.

Following discussions with the Kirkcaldy Taxi Association, Fife Retail Park management and the Council, a taxi rank has also been installed in the retail park at the former bus stop near Sainsbury’s.


Cllr Carol Lindsay, Kirkcaldy Area Vice Convener and Convener of the Regulation and Licensing Committee, said: “People’s shopping patterns are changing so taxi rank locations need to adapt too. The decision to install taxi ranks on St Clair Street and the retail park follow months of talks with the Kirkcaldy Taxi Association and the management at Fife Retail Park.


“This is another positive step in addressing the changing issues Kirkcaldy faces.”


Dawn Hunter, Kirkcaldy Taxi Association said: "Kirkcaldy taxis have had it hard for the past few years after Tesco closed its doors then the closure of several big name stores on the High Street. So we welcome the two new taxi ranks in the town and we are hopeful they will develop into busy ranks and benefit the people of Kirkcaldy too."
