Taxis and PHV Consultation

Our Focus on Customers
Taxis-Large-1

Around 32 million trips are made in taxis and private hire vehicles (PHVs) in Greater Manchester each year.

We know it’s an important way for many people to travel around the city-region. That’s why we are working with the ten district council local licensing authorities to make sure every journey meets the same high standard.

In summer 2018 we ran a survey to ask for the general public’s experiences of using taxis and private hire vehicles in Greater Manchester.

TfGM is now working with the Greater Manchester councils to develop a set of common, minimum set of standards for the taxis and private hire services they license.

This work is taking place alongside Greater Manchester’s plans to tackle roadside air quality, so that taxis and PHVs can play their part in reducing harmful emissions.
