In Hartlepool all Hackney Carriages must be painted yellow and must have a payment meter installed that measures the distance of any journey travelled and calculates the fare. Hackney Carriages may be ‘flagged down’ or be found plying for hire at a designated Taxi Rank. In addition Hackney Carriages may be booked in advance but any fare agreed must be no more than the cost calculated by the meter – unless the journey ends outside the borough of Hartlepool.
All private hire vehicles must be booked in advance. In Hartlepool they may be any colour other than yellow and must display round stickers on each front door stating ‘This vehicle must be pre-booked’. Private hire vehicles do not use meters to calculate the cost of the journey but instead the cost should be agreed between the company/driver and the passenger – ideally at the time of booking.
