The Department for Transport has issued updated guidance following the Governments relaxation of restrictions.
The DfT’s updated taxi and PHV guidance follows the Government’s publication of transport guidance for operators and passengers in England.
The DfT said:
“The guide for operators will help organisations, agencies and others (such as self-employed transport providers) understand how to provide safer workplaces and services for themselves, their workers and passengers across all modes of private and public transport. Each transport provider will need to translate the principles and examples in this guidance into specific actions."
To support this, the DfT’s Buses and Taxis Division has written to taxi and private hire vehicle providers and licensing authorities with Q&A for the taxi/PHV sector, containing links to the guidance and answers to common questions.
