Let's talk taxis

Do you travel by taxi or private hire services?

Whether you use them on a night out or to get around locally, we want you to have peace of mind on every journey. That's why we're proposing minimum standards for every service licensed in Bury, as part of Greater Manchester's plans to make sure every journey is safer and more reliable.

Taxis and private hire are a crucial part of our transport network, and the proposed minimum licensing standards could help put local operators ahead of out-of-town services as they will help give customers the confidence they are using a high-quality, safer and more reliable service, with high environmental and accessibility standards.

Have your say

An eight-week public consultation on the proposals started on Thursday 8 October 2020 and will run until midnight on Thursday 3 December 2020. This consultation will be the first of its kind and we'd like passengers, taxi and private hire drivers and operators to give their views.

Online sessions

If you're interested in the proposals for taxis or private hire services and have a question about the proposals, you can sign-up to one of the webinars.
