Campaign for Taxi Rank in Boyle
A signature campaign has commenced in Boyle to get a taxi rank located in the town.
Petition sheets are now located in a number of premises throughout the town including Brogans Pharmacy, Supervalu, Stewarts Oil, Applegreen, Creightons Bar, Padraig McGrath Butchers, Mattimoes Bar, Londis, Moylurg Inn, Open Table, Motor Works Corrib Oil and Taylors Hardware.
If you believe Boyle needs a dedicated taxi rank, please add your name to the petition.
At present there is only one licensed taxi in Boyle which is operated by Kane Taxis, but there is no dedicated taxi rank.
There are a number of hackney cars available in the town.
A recent survey here on Boyletoday.com asked the question: “Do we need a taxi service in Boyle, in addition to hackneys?”. The response was: 60% yes, 23% no while 17% said we are well served at present.
While it is understood Roscommon County Council are ‘open’ to the idea of a taxi rank in the town, they require evidence that such a need exists.
(Let us know if you will be signing the petition by partaking in the Boyletoday.com weekly poll on the bottom right of the homepage of this website)
