London Mayor wants both street hailed and booked taxi app markets to ‘flourish’ in the capital



The London Mayor wants both street hailed and booked taxi app markets to ‘flourish’ in the capital.


The London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, also wanted the public to decide how they engaged with taxi and private hire services in London following a question put forward to him by City Hall.

London Assembly member, David Kurten, asked Khan what “type of taxi service is your preferred choice in the future?”


Kurten gave Khan a choice of taxi services to choose from, highlighting services hailed directly from the street and those taxis that are booked on demand via an App.


Sadiq Khan responded saying: “I was clear in my Taxi and Private Hire Action Plan that I wanted to create a vibrant taxi and private hire market, with space for all providers to flourish.


“It is up to customers to decide how they wish to engage taxi services, but the more ways services are offered (within legislative requirements) the wider the audience they will reach.”
