The 'rationale' is that the Market Place is traffic free. New Rank in Cheap St/Market St somewhere, I think.

Do you not tell your driver where to pick you up?

But it isn't traffic free at 19:00, and no, I like to walk to the 'rank'.

What crap idea to move the rank! angry.gif

The taxi's should be allowed to pick up in the Market Place. Either that or the council need to heavily promote where the new ranks are.

PS. Not everyone is able to ring a cab / book a cab in advance.

Getting back to topic, I am sure there was a great deal of advance publicity, and debate in NWN about the removal of the taxi rank.....

And I believe there was a consultation on the WBC website. OK, some don't have access to www, but what network of information should there be so everyone can say they had a chance to know what was coming?

Maybe the taxi drivers could have mentioed it to their fares over the last month or so, they're not usually so reticent.

Not saying there should be an network of information? Why should the taxi rank be singled out for special WBC consideration? Just follow the normal WBC procedure .... taxpayers don't need to know! rolleyes.gif

Interesting to see what suggestions people have other than the local media and the www, which you have already mentioned.

It still doesn't make it a good idea! angry.gif

Today at 14:00, the market place looked like a barren waste of space.
