The city council regulates the fares charged for journeys in hackney carriages (taxis) within the city boundary.

Tables of fares: the maximum tables of fares with effect from 27 May 2014.

It is important to note that fares charged for the hire of private hire vehicles cannot be regulated by the city council; in both hackney carriages and private hire vehicles, passengers should always ensure that the basis of the fare has been agreed before the journey commences, especially if that journey goes beyond the city boundary.
