Calculation of taxi fares

  • The taxi fare is calculated dependent on what tariff is operating. We have 2 tariffs in the Falkirk Council area.
  • The taxi tariff charged will be dependent on what time of day it is or if it is a public holiday as stated on the Tariff Sheet. Future holiday dates can be downloaded below:
