Starting Sunday 7 April, Euston Station introduces a revamped taxi rank, exclusively for black cabs, featuring a suite of upgrades aimed at improving the passenger and cabbie's experiences.


The new rank, with a capacity of 36 spaces, includes a passenger help point, better signs leading to the station, and an addition of 120 cycle spaces.

Upgrades such as enhanced overhead canopies and a widened junction have been implemented to facilitate easier pedestrian access.


Situated at the forefront of the bus station, bordering Eversholt Street and Euston Road, the taxi rank takes its place on the Euston Square Gardens East site, directly opposite the station. For those in need of mobility support, the Assisted Travel Lounge will continue operations at its present location in Euston Square Gardens West, with staff available to offer guidance and assistance in both areas.


With the introduction of the new rank, the existing one will be transformed into a temporary public garden, featuring new plants, seating spaces, and a pedestrian route leading to the station. This garden is set to remain until the space is needed for the construction of a future HS2 terminus.


The development of the new taxi rank is a component of the broader HS2 project efforts at the station, carried out by the Mace Dragados joint venture (MDjv).

Private hire vehicles (PHVs), including services like Uber and Bolt, are directed to continue their operations in Euston Square Gardens West, maintaining a clear distinction in the pick-up points for different types of vehicles.


Gareth Parry, Euston Station Manager at Network Rail, said: “I’m delighted that the new taxi rank will open later this week, part of our wider investment in upgrading Euston station.  Teams from across the railway have worked closely together on this much needed upgrade and passengers can now have more comfortable journeys to and from the station.”

Nick Jones, HS2 Ltd’s Head of Delivery for Euston Station, said: “As part of our preparatory works for a future HS2 terminus at Euston, we have relocated the current taxi rank. The new facility has been created to improve the passenger experience, with new plants and greenery, brightly coloured canopies, new seating and bicycle parking.”
