Black ‘hackney’ cab taxis are also available from all airport terminals, for ease of travel either to or from the airport.

Fares for any journey taken inside the Manchester Licensed Area will be shown on the meter inside the taxi, while for destinations listed outside Manchester there is no requirement for the driver to use the taxi meter to determine the fare.

A published tariff of maximum fares is displayed at taxi ranks, and your driver will advise you of the fare (which is negotiable) before beginning the journey.  Please note that black cabs are more expensive than the private hire companies.
