Taxi fares in Guernsey will rise by an average of 1.58% from 2 September.

A spokesman for the Environment Department, which licenses taxis in the island, said the rise would increase the average journey by about 10p.

But as the tariff is based on 20p units some fares would remain the same while others would rise by a maximum of 20p.

The decision was made following a public consultation on the rise, to which there were no responses.

The department issued examples of how the increase would affect fares.

On tariff one, 07:00-22:00 Monday-Friday and 07:00-19:00 Saturday-Sunday, a 1.5 mile journey will stay at £5.40 whereas a 3.5 mile journey will increase from £9.00 to £9.20.

On tariff two, public holidays, 22:00-07:00 Monday-Friday and 19:00-07:00 Saturday-Sunday, a one mile trip will rise from £6.20 to £6.40 while a five mile journey will increase from £16.60 to £16.80.
