Taxi 'unmet demand' survey

The Council has commissioned an independent traffic transportation company to conduct an 'unmet demand survey' to assess whether there is any 'significant unmet demand', in relation to hackney carriage provision in Bolton.

An important part of the survey is to assess the views of people working in the licensed taxi and private hire trade. You are therefore encouraged to complete the taxi trade consultation questionnaire to ensure that your views and experience are taken into account. The deadline for completion is 10 June 2019.
