Licensed Hackney Carriage vehicles are the only vehicles that can use a taxi rank. These vehicles are black in colour, have a roof sign and must display a yellow plate on the rear of the vehicle, a smaller internal plate, and oval yellow door stickers on both front doors.
Hackney Carriage drivers must be licensed by the Council and wear an ID badge issued by the Council, which includes his/her photograph.
For your safety, all licensed taxis and private hire vehicles are regularly checked by agents of the local authority and all registered drivers are vetted by the police to ensure that all are fit and proper individuals. Please be sure that you do not use any vehicles that do not bear the RCT license marks.

The taxi rank is situated at Aberdare bus station
In addition to Hackney Carriages, R.C.T. also license private hire vehicles. These Private Hire Vehicles cannot ply for hire at taxi ranks or in the street. Journeys must be pre-booked, normally by phone or in person at an office.
