At present no plans to introduce e-taxi bus lanes says London Mayor

 

The London Mayor has confirmed there are no plans to introduce “e-taxi” bus lanes despite receiving approval from the Department for Transport. 

 

The capital’s transport regulator recently submitted and received authorisation from the Department for Transport for e-taxi bus lane signage which has caused concern from some sections of the industry. 

 

At a recent City Hall questions time Assembly Member Keith Prince asked the London Mayor Sadiq Khan when the bus lanes were likely to be introduced.

 

The Mayor dismissed the idea and confirmed there were no current plans.  


Sadiq Khan said: “Approval from the Department for Transport was needed for zero emission capable taxi signage to be put in place at taxi-only charging bays. TfL took the opportunity to gain approval for "e-taxi" versions of all other relevant signage.

“As you may be aware, I committed to looking into ZEC taxi rank provisions as part of my Taxi and Private Hire Action Plan. At present, there are no plans to use any of the e-taxi signs other than those for taxi-only charging points and ZEC taxi rank.”
