Greater Manchester Minimum Licensing Standards
Taxis and private hire services are a crucial part of our transport network. They provide an important service, particularly for those without access to a car, and people who don’t live or work near other parts of the public transport network.
We want to see taxi and private hire services in Greater Manchester deliver a safer, high-quality experience for everyone, every time, using vehicles that meet high environmental standards.
That’s why Greater Manchester’s 10 local councils, supported by Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), have worked to develop a proposed set of common, minimum standards for services licensed in Greater Manchester.
We ran a public consultation on our proposals between Thursday 8 October and Thursday 3 December 2020. We’re now reviewing feedback before confirming the agreed standards and the timelines for implementation.
