Be safe when you travel

Please only use licensed taxis (private hire and hackney carriage). Licensed taxi drivers have been vetted and their vehicles are regularly safety tested, they also have the appropriate insurance in place.

Don't spoil your evening out by struggling to get home, always arrange your return journey at the start of the evening so you won't struggle to arrange transport later.

Taxis are licensed as either private hire or hackney carriage, and whilst both do a very similar job, they operate in slightly different ways.
