Aberdeen to get first taxi rate rise in seven years

Aberdeen is to have its first taxi rate rise in seven years.

Members of the city council's licensing committee agreed the 5% increase by adjusting yardage figures, which means additional charges to the basic tariff will begin after a shorter distance.

It is due to come into effect on 21 August.

It followed a consultation on two proposals. The local authority reviews fares every 18 months, but had not increased them since 2011.
