What is a Fare Car?

Fare Car is a shared public transport service operated by Private Hire cars. This enables passengers to book and pay separately but share the advertised timetabled journeys. The fare charged is slightly above the normal bus fare for the distance travelled. Fare Car is not a subsidised individual taxi service for people to use whenever and wherever they wish.

Fare Car is operated by local taxi operators by formal agreement with Devon County Council.

Who can use a Fare Car?

Fare Car is available to passengers of all ages, regardless of whether or not they live in the area it operates.

How do I use a Fare Car?

To use Fare Car you need to book in advance with the taxi company operating the service, normally with 24 hours notice.
