A local private hire company charged six passengers £13 (and 10p!) for the half mile between the William Foster pub to the Adam and Eve pub at 1900 on Sunday 10th April. Visitors to the City told me last night. PH fares are massively higher than hackney rates now. Would have cost £5 to £6 in a Hackney. Yes, hackney fares should go up, but the head of licensing is “far to busy” to push through a tariff increase that was applied for last year. Glad to be out of it. Much more fun doing the homes under the hammer thing…

So is the hackney rate £10-£12 a mile?

And I doubt the punters were forced into the PH.

I’m a civilian now, so I thought I’d write this as your average journalist would, by not letting the truth get in the way of a good story.

Seems to me the flagfall could be £5.00 and the Running Mile could be £2.00 and then a half mile fare would be £6.00 QED.
