Don't know if this is in the right section, and its a long shot but..

Any ideas how to get home from Liverpool after a night out on New Years? Preferably not taxis as I'd rather stay sober and drive over than pay those prices. Just wondering if there's any private companies offering travel back over the water. Worth a try if anyone has any ideas

Not sure. Just tried to find out but the merseytravel site isn't very helpful. Also the bus stop is quite a way from where we're coming from

Phone argyle park taxis 201 1111 and ask them if they're doing taxi runs through to Liverpool? They're cheaper than hackney rip offs!

"not taxis as I'd rather stay sober and drive over than pay those prices"


thats a disgracefull comment, your more than happy to pay over the odds for entrance into clubs, overpriced drinks etc yet you have a problem paying a man working his new years eve probably to help his family just to get you home safly


i hope you have a really crap night


best wishes

What a nasty reply.

Nothing disgraceful about BadWolf's post at all. It's up to them where they choose to spend their s and whether or not they think Black Cabs offer value for money.

Hhhhmmmm it's a logical reply, I believe it costs in excess off 140 per week just to hire/insure/mot the taxi add on fuel and license plate it's a lot of money.

Also if you pay someone not licensed they are not insured and neither are passengers. If a mate does it for fuel costs it's fine.

if only it cost 140 i would be rich

100 a week to hire the radio
90 a week insurance if you pay weekly.A lot cheaper if you can afford a policy
90 to 100 for a settle car
150 in fuel or more to make there money then yours
i have my own car and policy and i have to make 245 before i make anything,spare i thought for the lads who have to make 450 every week before they make anything!! so i count myself lucky

Ok I got figures wrong but I was defending you guys, I know 2 taxi drivers + a few who have packed up due to costs spiraling.

A friend of mine had a black cab and he used to tell me that at xmas and New Year black cabs were only allowed to put their fares up by 10p? a mile while private car taxis could charge up to 2 or 3 times their normal fare depending whether before or after midnight

a google search may give further taxi info

The Christmas goodwill to all men seems to be missing here - and all because someone wants to save their taxi fare - a very harsh comment.

are fare to Liverpool is 18.00 on new year for the first 4 miles inc tunnel then 2.50 a mile,so a six mile journey from the wirral is going to be 5.75 a head if there's four of you? not bad being picked up from your door,and the same back not bad for new years eve do you not think

If it helps i drive a hackney cab, last night I was flagged on old chester road and asked to go to Liverpool as i hit the cobbles it was 16.70 and as the private hire firm i work for charged a min of 20 to liverpool the hackney meter (which is never double fare) was cheaper than the private hire rates.
