Title of request: Fuel Types of Local Authority licensed Taxis

Dear Bruce Sutherland,

Thank you for your information request. We have completed the necessary
search for the information requested. Our response is now detailed below.

Please could you list by percentage with total along side the breakdown of
the type of fuel used by licensed taxis/cabs/phv currently in operation
within your local authority.

For example:

Electric % (total number),

Hybrid % (total number),

Petrol % (total number),

Diesel % (total number),

Hydrogen % (total number).

Electric 0% (0),

Hybrid 0.5% (5),

Petrol 1.3% (12),

Diesel 98.2% (903),

Hydrogen 0% (0).

As the information which you requested is environmental information, as
defined under Regulation 2(1) of the Environmental Information (Scotland)
Regulations 2004 (the EIRs), ACC considered that it was exempt from
release through FOISA, and must therefore give you notice that we are
refusing your request under Section 39(2) of FOISA (Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002). However, you have a separate right to access the
information which you have requested under Regulation 5 of the EIRs, under
which ACC has handled your request.

If you are dissatisfied with the way we have handled your request or the
content of it, you are entitled to ask for an appeal. You can do this from
your [1]Aberdeen City Council self service account.

For more information on your right to review, please visit [2]Freedom of
Information Review and Appeals.

We hope this helps with your request.
