Parliamentary Taxi and Private Hire Awards gear up for 2024 nominations



The Parliamentary Taxi & Private Hire Awards, now in its illustrious fifth year and proudly supported by taxi app FREENOW, are set to unfold once again. This prestigious event is now accepting nominations, with the deadline set for 23 May 2024.


This initiative provides Members of Parliament an exclusive opportunity to honour drivers from their constituencies who have demonstrated exceptional dedication and service beyond their usual duties.

Drivers who believe their contributions warrant recognition are encouraged to reach out to their MPs for nomination. Historically, these awards have lauded drivers across the nation for their remarkable efforts in volunteering, charity work, and promoting sustainability, as well as for their essential role in supporting their local communities.


The upcoming ceremony, scheduled for 2 July 2024, promises to be a grand affair with a record number of Parliamentarians and nominees expected to attend. It will be hosted at the stately Terrace Pavilion of the Houses of Parliament, with a stunning backdrop of the River Thames. This year, the event is set to be co-hosted by the distinguished British broadcaster, author, and political commentator Iain Dale, alongside the event's founder, Daniel Zeichner MP.


All nominees will be duly recognised with a certificate that commemorates their invaluable contributions to their communities. The initiative was originally established in 2019 by Daniel Zeichner MP, who chairs the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles. Its primary aim has been to unify the industry, celebrating the commendable efforts of drivers and inspiring passengers alike.

Mariusz Zabrocki, UK General Manager, FREENOW, said: "As a preferred partner for many taxi drivers up and down the country, we are delighted to support the 5th edition of the Parliamentary Taxi and PHV Awards and celebrate their contribution to the local communities and the local economy.


“At FREENOW, we continue to support the industry and do our best to ensure measures are in place to support the taxi trade to thrive in the years to come.”

 

Daniel Zeichner MP said: "The Parliamentary Taxi & Private Hire Awards is a chance for MPs to celebrate and honour taxi and PHV drivers and shine a light on all the fantastic work they do in their communities. I'm looking forward to welcoming drivers to this year's Awards, which will be taking place on 2 July in the Houses of Parliament.


“After the huge success of last year's event - which saw a record number of outstanding nominations - I cannot wait to read this year's submissions. I'm also delighted that once again, the Awards sponsor is mobility app FREENOW - leading licensed taxi company in Europe and London’s No. 1 Taxi app."
