Kildare is one of the 23 counties with less taxi licenses compared to pre-Covid levels.

New figures show that the number of taxi licences in operation has fallen in nearly every county across the country over the past five years.

The Midlands East Region excluding Dublin has been heavily impacted by taxi shortages in recent years, falling by 17.5%.

Kildare has seen a 22.8% decrease in taxi licences compared to 2019. 

Monaghan is the most affected county, with a 26.5% decrease in taxi licences. 

The Taxis for Ireland Coalition is calling on the NTA and the Government to take immediate action to address the shortage of taxis.
