Taxi Marshal Scheme For Dundee05/11/15
At the Licensing Committee on Thursday (November 05) it was announced that Dundee City Council is to launch its taxi marshal scheme.
In 2014, the committee agreed to look into a scheme to introduce taxi marshals in the city.
The marshals will be at the Hawkhill/Brown Street taxi rank, just beside G Casino on Friday and Saturday evenings between 11pm and 4am – with an increased presence over the busy festive period.
The scheme will come into force from mid-November, with staff provided by SGL security. Additional support will be provided by council officers.
Licensing Committee Convener Councillor Stewart Hunter said: “Our priority and sole duty is public safety. We as a committee have previously agreed that the taxi marshal scheme will bring great benefits to people on a night out in the city, and the night time economy, as well as drivers and operators of taxis.
“More details will be announced in due course and I am sure this scheme will get the full support it deserves.”
