Taxi and private hire vehicle (PHV)

Greater Manchester has been directed by government to introduce a ‘Category C’ Clean Air Zone to reduce harmful nitrogen dioxide air pollution.

Non-compliant commercial vehicles, including some taxis (hackney carriages) and private hire vehicles, would need to pay a daily charge to drive on local roads in Greater Manchester.

At the same time, the 10 local authorities in Greater Manchester have also developed a set of common minimum standards for taxi and PHV drivers, operators and licensing authorities. These standards are aligned to the Greater Manchester Clean Air Plan proposals.

To support local Greater Manchester-licensed taxi and private hire owners we are asking government for a multi-million-pound funding support package to help upgrade to compliant vehicles or zero-emission-capable vehicles.
