Taxicard Fixed Price Trips in Taxis

Taxicard Fixed Price Trips in Taxis

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.   CityFleet are now planning to increase the number of these types of trips available and from January 2015 will create 10 new fixed price taxi trips each month.  CityFleet would welcome suggestions from Taxicard members for these trips.  To qualify for a fixed price taxi trip all suggestions should meet the following criteria:   •    The trip must not be time critical so trips to and from supermarkets etc are ideal •    The trip must be a single swipe journey   Please note that not all suggested journeys may be suitable for a fixed price.   If you would like to suggest a trip to be considered for a fixed price please contact 0207 908 0271..

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).  ..
