TAXI fare in the Scottish Borders are set to rise by 2.5 per cent following talks between the council and taxi operators, writes Bob Burgess.

The planned rise follows the annual review of fares and if approved by councillors on Tuesday will take effect on December 3.

A total of 114 taxi firms were approached by the council for their views but the response to a second phase of consultation has been described by Scottish Borders council as “poor”.
