Find a taxi rank

We work closely with the taxi and licensed hire trade throughout the Borough and license both taxis and private hire vehicles.

On-street taxi ranks allow licensed hackney carriages to park and wait for customers.

The signs on the taxi rank show the days and times of operation. Stands are located in areas where there is a lot of customer demand such as near shops, bars and restaurants.  

Parking in a taxi rank by a vehicle other than a licensed hackney carriage is not permitted and you may receive a penalty charge notice.  

The locations of the taxi ranks are detailed below.
