Taxi fares in Liverpool have now risen to help drivers as the cost of living squeezes finances up and down England.


Drivers have until tomorrow (6 April) to have their meters updated in accordance with the new rates.

The city's new day rate, which runs between 06:00 and 23:00 Monday to Friday, will now cost £3.00 for the first 330 yards or less, then 20p each time succeeding 205 yards (or less) up to 35,200 yards, then 20p each time succeeding 300 yards (or less), with a 20p waiting charge for each 60 seconds.


The night rate, which runs between 23:00 and 06:00, will now cost £3.75 for the first 330 yards or less, then 25p for each time succeeding 205 yards (or less) up to 35,200 yards, then 25p each time succeeding 300 yards (or less), with a 25p waiting charge each 60 seconds.

Weekend rates, which run between 19:00 on Saturday to 07:00 Sunday, will now be charged at £4.00 for the first 330 yards or less, then 25p for each time succeeding 205 yards (or less) up to 35,200 yards, then 25p each time succeeding 300 yards (or less), with a 25p waiting charge for each 60 seconds.


Cabbies all around the UK have called for a rise in taxi rates to help cover the cost of living rise and increased fuel prices.


Many licensing authorities have taken into account the difficulties faced by licensed drivers and have either issued fare rises or have started consultants to decide whether one will be implemented in the near future.
