Loans are available to owners and operators of hackney cabs to replace cabs that are more than 8 years old with new, efficient cabs. Interest free loans, funded by Transport Scotland, can be used to cover 100% of the cost, up to £100,000.
To be eligible for a loan, you must be replacing a hackney cab which is more than 8 years old, with a new hackney cab with an emission standard of Euro 5 or 6. From September 2016 only emission standard Euro 6 will be accepted.
