There is a school of thought that hackneys can only take bookings when in their own area, unless via a licensed operator.

I don't share those thoughts.

To me it's crystal clear, a hackney can take a phone booking from anywhere, and it doesn't have to be via a licensed operator.

There are no hackney/operator provisions in the acts, therefore no law for any hackney to break.

If I am dropping off at say Download festival in my Hackney and someone asks if I can take them home I can just give them my phone number for them to ring me, which they do, and then I can take them?



after the fest yes, on the same day there and then no



there is no provision in law of which i am aware that prescribes a minimum elapsed time between phone call and pick up although it was suggested during one of ubers many court battels IIRC.
