The current maximum tariff still displayed today in Bridgend Cabs with the one pound charge for card payments displayed baring the council’s logo

In August 2011 the taxi trade saw themselves move to 271 place in the table even though the proposal was grossly under valued at the time when you go compare tariff one in other boroughs like Cardiff current taxi tariff signed off by Dave Holland ,and the Vale of Glamorgan including Carmarthenshire

Looking at other boroughs the Watch Dogs conclude Bridgend Cabinet and Bridgend licensing cannot justify their decisions to-date when you look at the whole picture of which there are many. In the above case minimum wage has gone up some 23.4 percent

Take a look at Pembrokeshire a taxi trade that shows what a rural taxi needs if not a small town rural taxi. There are many examples that show Bridgend Cabinet is killing the idea of taxi drivers earning the minimum wage or more to cover their many expenses that run into £400+ per week, before they start earning for themselves

But yet, Bridgend Cab drivers have the pleasure of sitting 328 and well behind the times and economic times, for one good reason. Bridgend Cabinet with their operations and administration have the power to hold off Drive when he know he/she/they/them needs an increase of the HACKNEY CARRIAGE TARIFF BRIDGEND MID GLAMORGAN WALES

Go compare many boroughs that know what they are talking about in the taxi trade and gather the info that shows it in black and white. Why can’t Bridgend Cabinet play the game many ask in the public domain
