Hackney carriages or Green cabs are public transport vehicles which are licensed to “ply for hire”. They can:
- carry passengers for hire or reward
- be hailed by prospective passengers in the street
- park on a rank to await the approach of passengers
A hackney carriage must be driven by a driver who holds a hackney carriage driver’s licence.
Hackney carriage vehicles can be found at the ranks around the city and they can be hailed in the street.
These vehicles have a roof light with the word TAXI on them. They have a plate affixed to the rear and a smaller version affixed to the windscreen which carry details of the expiry date, licence number and vehicle registration.
What are benefits of using a Hackney carriage over a ‘mini-cab’:
- Advertising (which a private hire firm cannot legally do)
- Safety of passengers
- Green cabs are allowed to go anywhere in the city and drive in bus lanes
- Extra leg room
- All of our cabs are 5/6 seater at no extra cost
- All of our cabs are wheelchair friendly
- Our prices are set by Nottingham City Council
- Up to 10% discount for account customers
- Fixed rate prices can be negotiated
All of our vehicles are capable of transporting wheelchair-using, or mobility impaired, passengers. Wheelchair-using passengers are assisted into the vehicle by the driver, using a lift or a ramp, with some newer taxis featuring side loading. The wheelchair is usually secured using a type of belt and clip combination, or wheel locks. All of our drivers are experienced, fully trained, have the relevant qualifications and are fully vetted and insured.
These days, people will only stay loyal to a company if they have a very good reason to. Otherwise, there is plenty of competition available they could choose to move to. As a result, we at Fastlane cabs work tirelessly to keep customers and build their trust. By providing the best in customer service, we hope to increase trust and give confidence to our customers.
We take the views of our customers seriously and will do what we can to ensure a quality service is provided to each customer’s needs. So if you have any concerns or complaints then please get in touch either by email or telephone and we will be more than happy to assist with your query.
