For a number of months CityFleet have been carrying out some fixed price trips in licensed black taxis. Fixed price trips are trips carried out at a fixed price instead of being charged on the meter. Metered trips often mean the cost of the same journey can vary because of the time taken or the distance travelled to complete the trip can vary. The benefits of a fixed price trip are a) it always means you pay the same amount (which is just the minimum passenger contribution) and b) on average the fixed price is cheaper than the metered fare....
London Councils manages the Taxicard scheme on behalf of your local council and is seeking your views regarding a proposal to charge for replacement Taxicards. Taxicards are replaced for a number of reasons: because people have lost them, they have been stolen or because they no longer work when swiped in the taxi (damaged or faulty). ...
Taxicard is a scheme that provides subsidised transport for people who have serious mobility impairment and difficulty in using public transport. Taxicard holders make journeys in licensed London taxis and private hires vehicles, and the subsidy applies directly to each trip.
The London Taxicard Scheme is funded by the participating London boroughs and the mayor of London. London Councils Transport and Environment Committee (TEC) manages the London Taxicard Scheme on their behalf.
Your Taxicard can be used anytime, 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, subject to taxi and private hire vehicle availability.
My Taxicard allows me to do all my own shopping without having to ask my neighbours
