Taxi Leaks has been informed that London councils are looking to change the Taxi card system. In a recent consultation sent to all card users, they are asking a series of loaded questions seeking to include in the service app based private hire....and we all know what that means. It certainly looks to us that they want to change the ratio of Taxi service and private hire jobs giving Taxis just the street hails.
The consultation states :
The survey allows anyone to fill in the survey as their is no need for a name, address or email address.
Do you have a view on Taxi Cards.
If so, have a look here >Taxi Card consultation <
As we all take credit cards, why not suggest they issue a card similar to an Oyster card, that can be used in the same way allowing wheelchair users to make use of all Black Taxis not just ComCab.
The consultation runs till Wednesday 5th April.
Below are the yearly figures for the number of Taxi Card trips please share, if we lose this contract we lose over a million Taxi fares
