Taximeters to be made compulsory in October 2016

1 Mins read

New legislation which requires taxis in Northern Ireland to install taximeters and printers will be enforced from October 2016, the Minister for Infrastructure has revealed.

The Minister revealed this date in response to a question from East Londonderry DUP MLA George Robinson, asking when a taxi meter and printer for every taxi will become compulsory.

In his response to Mr Robinson, the Minister for Infrastructure said : “From 31 May 2016 all Class A and B taxis were required to install and use an approved taximeter and printer and adhere to a new maximum fare.

Following representations from the taxi industry my predecessor decided that the new requirements would not be fully enforced until 1 October 2016.

I recognise that there is no consensus on the appropriate way to best regulate the industry to protect consumers. This is an issue that I will be considering in depth in the coming weeks.”
