TfL are working with Wolverhampton Council to allow them to continue PHV checks says Mayor of London

The Mayor of London has confirmed that Transport for London (TfL) are actively establishing a working framework with the City of Wolverhampton Council to facilitate their ongoing private hire vehicle checks in the capital.

London Assembly Member, Caroline Pidgeon, recently sought clarification from Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, regarding compliance operations conducted in the capital in coordination with the City of Wolverhampton Council, and whether TfL was involved.

In response, Mayor Khan affirmed that TfL's compliance teams regularly engage in joint activities with other licensing authorities, both within and outside of London. Specifically referring to the City of Wolverhampton Council, the Mayor acknowledged that they had carried out on-street inspections in London independently, bearing the cost themselves. TfL has requested detailed information on the outcomes of these inspections.

Moreover, TfL is actively establishing a collaborative framework with the City of Wolverhampton Council to facilitate their ongoing work in London. Both parties are said to share a common goal of ensuring that licensed vehicles have legitimate reasons for operating in the capital while effectively addressing potential concerns related to passenger safety and road safety.

Khan said: “Transport for London’s (TfL’s) compliance teams regularly work with other licensing authorities on joint activities, both in London and outside the Capital. TfL is aware that Wolverhampton Council has undertaken on-street inspections in London at its own cost, and TfL has requested information on the results.

“TfL is in the process of establishing joint working with Wolverhampton Council for its continued work in London. TfL and Wolverhampton Council both want to ensure that licensed vehicles have a legitimate reason to be in London and jointly address any potential safeguarding or road safety issues.”
