Many taxis drivers now firmly put the blame on Bridgend taxi licensing department and shared regulatory services department for poor practices now confirmed leaving Bridgend taxis behind some 26% in revenue, as a result of antique or unique practices used by BCBC over the years to calculate the cost to run a Hackney Carriage Taxi – Street hail taxi, and the fare setting as a result, which today do not stack up anymore

Which the Watch dogs team – BIT partners, have established what they call the BCBC guessing game for setting fares, as BCBC have never worked out properly the cost to run with man power a taxi in Bridgend Mid Glamorgan Wales or used a formula as per the guidance of the department of transport:

TAXI FARES
52. Local licensing authorities have the power to set taxi fares for journeys within their
area, and most do so. (There is no power to set PHV fares.) Fare scales should be
designed with a view to practicality. The Department sees it as good practice to review
the fare scales at regular intervals, including any graduation of the fare scale by time of
day or day of the week. Authorities may wish to consider adopting a simple formula for
deciding on fare revisions as this will increase understanding and improve the
transparency of the process. The Department also suggests that in reviewing fares
authorities should pay particular regard to the needs of the travelling public, with
reference both to what it is reasonable to expect people to pay but also to the need to
give taxi drivers sufficient incentive to provide a service when it is needed. There may well be a case for higher fares at times of higher demand.
53. Taxi fares are a maximum, and in principle are open to downward negotiation
between passenger and driver. It is not good practice to encourage such negotiations at
ranks, or for on-street hailings; there would be risks of confusion and security problems.
But local licensing authorities can usefully make it clear that published fares are a
maximum, especially in the context of telephone bookings, where the customer benefits
from competition. There is more likely to be a choice of taxi operators for telephone
bookings, and there is scope for differentiation of services to the customer’s advantage
(for example, lower fares off-peak or for pensioners).

During this process it has been established licensing stall requests-proposals for fare increases from taxi drivers, or members of the taxi trade. That is the system BCBC taxi licensing header has adopted over the years, which has been very successful in driving taxi prices down and way down low, even if it means Taxi Drive runs at a loss, or has to work over time to earn an income because he or she is taking less than he or she should be.

Today the BIT team have established through their year investigation into Bridgend Taxi licensing, that Bridgend taxi licensing have achieved up to a 26% hold on fare increases over the years, and have effectively frozen, and forced the local borough drivers, and taxi trade into uneconomical fares to live by for many years by way of BCBC false accounting or reporting.

Remember rural taxis should be more as cows do not get taxis and nor do sheep.
