Residents asked to give their views on taxi services in Lancaster and Morecambe area

Residents are being asked to give their views to help improve licensed taxi services across the district.

A new consultation has been launched to gauge public opinion on the operation of licensed drivers in the district.

This will cover the ability to obtain the services of a licensed vehicle, to issues which prevent taxi use, to opinions on the driver application criteria.

Lancaster City Council is reviewing application standards and procedures due to the shortage of licensed drivers in the area.

The council is responsible for the licensing of taxi and private hire drivers, vehicles and operators.

Responses received through the consultation will help with the review, which aims to break down some of the perceived barriers for people entering the trade and make the process of becoming a taxi driver more streamlined and efficient.

The consultation can be found here and it closes on October 30.
