Rank taxi drivers refuse passengers in protest

Rank taxi drivers in Jersey won't take passengers this morning in protest to changes to their fares.

The changes were announced by the Infrastructure Department earlier this week.

The Department for Infrastructure say they'll introduce a 'one price system' for all taxi drivers in Jersey.

The changes mean that private and ranked taxis in the island will have to charge passengers the same fare - except private companies will have the option to charge a booking fee.

The Department for Infrastructure say passengers could be charged extra for things like baggage and for more than one person using the taxi.

These extras have been incorporated into an additional flat fee of 20p per journey.

Companies offering pre-booked journeys may also charge an additional declared fixed percentage or fixed fee above the new taxi-cab tariff.

The decision comes after the Minister announced major reforms to Jersey's taxi industry in 2015.
