It would remain the case that taxis would only be allowed to pick up passengers in their own area (unless they had a pre-booking). However, we will recommend freeing up cross-border working for private hire services. Operators would no longer be limited to using drivers and vehicles from their own area; nor would they be restricted to only inviting or accepting bookings within that same licensing area. Under no circumstances would a private hire vehicle be allowed to pick up a passenger without a pre-booking with a valid operator.

Well ph aren't supposed to pick up now without being pre booked, but, that doesn't stop them. I wonder what enforcement will do when they have twice or trice the vehicles to enforce :?

I suspect there will be even less enforcement, as the fees situation will be a lot different than it is now.

Really hope I'm wrong.

I was hoping for a wider zoning system in our case we are on the border of 4 licensing authorities so we can be in the situation that taking a flag down 100 yards from the edge of town would be illegal :sad:
