Derby cabs will soon get a distinctive new look


In the near future, new Hackney carriages operating in Derby will all be black with a distinctive yellow flash.

The new colour scheme will be a sign to residents that the vehicle meets strict emission standards and the owner is playing their part in helping reduce pollution levels by using the latest and cleanest cars available to the trade.

Yellow Hackney carriages are a familiar part of the city's transport network and are allowed to park in the streets at taxi ranks to pick up fares.

But a decision was taken by the city's licensing committee last year to develop a taxi and private hire vehicle strategy, which included the colour change and other new rules for Hackney carriages and private hire vehicles.

Whilst the implementation has been delayed, the first new vehicles are now ready to hit the streets.

People driving the current yellow cabs have until January 2025 to meet the required minimum standard of Euro 6 Diesel or ZEC ULEV, which cut emissions and are cleaner fuel-driven vehicles.

By the same date, all Hackney carriages and private hire vehicles should be no more than 15 years old for diesel vehicles and 12 years for ZEC ULEV vehicles.

Councillor Ajit Atwal, licensing committee chairman, said: “I’m really pleased we’ve been able to begin moving forward with the rebranding of the Derby fleet.

"The committee was strongly in favour of this measure, easing the burden on taxi drivers having to do a full respray of their Hackney carriages, whilst retaining that distinctive yellow brand.

“Derby customers will be able to see the new yellow flash and know that they are getting into a safer and more efficient vehicle.”
