Petition to Woking Borough Council - Taxi Rank Accessibility

This Petition has been referred to the meeting of the Executive to be held on 16 January 2020 at 7.00pm at the Civic Offices, Gloucester Square, Woking. The meeting will be open to Members of Public and a live webcast will be shown through the Council's website. The agenda will be published a week before the meeting.

More details from petition creator

The distance from the train station to the taxi rank is an access issue for less-abled people and also inconveniences customers on rainy days. We would like the rank to be moved closer to the station. The current route taxi drivers have to take does not let them travel straight through the High Street, and instead involves going around Victoria Way to get to places such as Goldsworth Road and Old Woking. This indirect route impacts negatively on fares for customers and makes journeys longer than necessary. We are requesting that taxis be allowed to access bus lanes through the High Street, a practice already in place in several cities and towns across the country.

We request that where WBC can make the change they do so. Where WBC cannot make the change directly then the council strongly recommends to the relevant parties that these amendments are made.
