Four in five people say taxi partition screens provide more comfortable journeys in ComCab survey

A survey by Liverpool-based taxi firm ComCab has revealed four in five people feel the partition screen in traditional black cabs makes for a more comfortable journey.

The research carried out by the cab firm showed how passenger attitudes to transport during the pandemic has changed in the Merseyside area.

The results showed that black taxis were cited as the safest form of travel by nearly a third of respondents. Just over 10% are comfortable using a private hire, with bus and train journeys accounting for less than 10% each.

80% said that the partition in a black cab made it an attractive way to travel. The survey, which more than 220 local residents responded to, also highlighted that one in five wrongly thought cabs had stopped working 24 hours a day.

One in four will not drink and take their car to the pub when they reopen. A similar number say they will walk or bike more.

Claire Langrell, ComCab Sales Manager, said: “Only ten percent of people cited social distancing as being inconvenient. Black cabs still have a major role to play in moving people round the city. The statistics tell us people feel safe because of their purpose-built design.”
