Hackney Carriage fare chart

We set fares for Hackney Carriages within Oxford. Fares are charged by meter. Outside Oxford you should negotiate a fare or agree a tariff for the meter.

 

The driver must, unless he has reasonable excuse, accept any hiring within the City of Oxford boundary if the destination is also within the City of Oxford boundary. The fare for such a journey, shown below, will be calculated by the taxi meter.

 

The driver does not have to accept journeys that end outside the City of Oxford boundary; the fare or rate of fare must be by agreement between the hirer and driver before the journey commences. The fare is likely to be higher than within the City as drivers cannot accept a return hiring. Where no such agreement exists then the scale of charges applicable to journeys within the City shown below will apply.
