Aberdeenshire Council is currently reviewing the taxi fare scale for the area, and our proposed a new structure .
We have also created a ‘taxi fare calculator’ to assist you when considering the proposals. The calculator can be used by the trade or other consultees to assess the impact which any changes will have on the cost of travel.
This can be done by changing the ‘Flagfall’, ‘Increments’, ‘Initial Uplift’ or ‘Yardage’ figures on the third tab of the spreadsheet, the changes will then carry through to the ‘fare calculator’ found on the second tab.
When a distance is entered in the red box the spreadsheet automatically calculates the applicable fare for that journey.
This then allows the trade or any other consultee to assess any proposals which they may wish to put forward in respect of the current review.
