First Hackney Carriage taxi licence given to tuk tuk operator in Wales

A new Tuk-Tuk service has been handed a hackney carriage taxi licence to operate on the South Coast of Wales.

The three-wheeled vehicles, imported from India, are now available to the public to hail along the south Pembrokeshire coast.

According to the Western Telegraph, the south Pembrokeshire firm will start with a fleet of two vehicles, but have plans to grow.

This follows the news of global private hire firm Ola being given the green light to operate Tuk-Tuks in Cardiff.

Passengers in the Welsh capital using the mobile app, originating from India, will be able to e-hail an electric rickshaw called a Zbee. The vehicles will be able to accommodate two passengers, travelling short distances in the city and around Cardiff Bay.

Cardiff councillors gave Ola the okay in July and created new special conditions for private hire licensed Tuk-Tuks.

Ola said in its application to operate in Cardiff that the service will help in achieving the city’s aim of 100% zero emission transport vehicles by 2022.
