2021 Review of taxi (black cab) fares and tariffs in London

  • By StacyRands

Dear Stakeholder

We’re reviewing taxi (black cab) fares and tariffs in London and would like your views on whether we should increase taxi fares to help taxi drivers cover their costs.

Transport for London (TfL) licenses and regulates taxi and private hire services in London. As part of this, we set the maximum fares that taxis (black cabs) can charge.

We are considering three possible options for fares and tariffs as part of the review and whether further charges should be added to cover costs associated with taxis dropping off and picking up passengers from Heathrow Airport.

Please go to our consultation website to find out more information on the options we are considering, background to the proposals, as well as a survey seeking your views. We will use the feedback from the survey to inform our recommendations on which of the options to proceed with.

The consultation is open until 2 February 2022.

We invite anyone with interest in these matters to comment on these proposals. We would like to hear from as many people as possible and we would welcome your support in passing this message on to others in your networks who might be interested in taking part.

If you have any questions please email [email protected] with ‘Taxi Fares’ in the subject line.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully

Helen Chapman
Director Licensing Regulation & Charging
Transport for London
