The Park Tower, Knightsbridge Hotel, located in the heart of London's prestigious Knightsbridge district, has recently reintroduced the use of the hotel's taxi call light.
The initiative aims to provide a seamless and efficient transportation experience for its guests and provide the capital’s black cab drivers more work.
Anthony Street, an executive at the Licensed Taxi Drivers' Association (LTDA), wrote about the development in TAXI Newspaper. The call light, positioned directly above the hotel's foot entrance, will serve as a signal to indicate when there is a demand for taxis.
The main entrance and designated taxi stand of the hotel are located on the opposite side of the building, overlooking Lowndes Square.
Street said: “The new Concierge of the Park Tower, Knightsbridge Hotel contacted the LTDA to let us know that he has reinstated the use of the hotel's taxi call light to show when there is demand for taxis.
“The Concierge will work with the Operations Manager to ensure the taxi light is used when there is a lot of demand from guests and very taxi supply. They ask drivers to please keep an eye out for the taxi light signalling "guests waiting" for cabs.”
