Taxi rank

Recommended Posts

Daft question alert!

 

the taxi rank at the bronze gate - is it quite well stocked generally with taxis waiting for fares? Has anyone used it for ad hoc journeys late at. Igbo and how much d'ya reckon it would be for a taxi back to Castle Cary?

I've not seen the Glastonbury taxi rank, but I've seen (worked on) the equivilent at a couple of festivals a fraction of the size and can't imagine it'll be any better than disasterous with multiple hour queues/waiting at peak times.

Taxi regulations say that only the ones licensed by the relevant local authority (in this case Mendip District Council) can pick up in that area without having a pre arranged booking - which means the supply is severly limited. You can order one from outside the area to come and collect you but most companies who'll do that will get booked up well in advance of the Festival and will likely slap a huge out of area charge on the fare.

Soi yeah, as a general rule - Taxis at Festivals - any Festival of a decent size - are an absolute shitshow especially at busy times.

You wont have any joy wandering up on Monday morning but I've booked taxis to collect me a few times from the festival on Monday morning and its always been ok. 

Can't remember who exactly but loads of the cab companies around the area take bookings if you ring around.
