Taxi rules in Leeds and West Yorkshire ‘should be harmonised’
Plans to standardise rules for taxi drivers across the region will go before councillors next week.
A report is set to go before the council’s licensing committee which lists West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s proposals to “harmonise” taxi and private hire vehicles across West Yorkshire and York.
