Hackney carriage ranks in Salford

Salford City Council provides hackney carriage stands, also known as taxi ranks, where taxis may wait for customers. 

Only taxis licensed by Salford City Council can use these ranks, and they cannot be used by private hire vehicles which can only pick up passengers for journeys that have been pre-booked through a private hire operator.

Ranks are provided where a demand has been identified, such as outside hospitals, bus and railway stations, or close to significant leisure or hospitality offerings. Locations where the public or taxi drivers have suggested would be beneficial are also considered.

Ranks can be operational at all hours or part-time, such as evenings only. Please see below for a list of the current hackney carriage ranks in Salford, with accompanying details of size and any time restrictions.
