The London Taxi vehicle is the only purpose-built taxi vehicle in the world today. They are built at the original London Taxi Company factory in Coventry, England.
They aren’t standard passenger cars that have been adapted, they are purpose built for the job.
We are like any other taxi. You can hail us in the street (as long as our yellow light is on), we respond to waving hands, salutes, whistles, and any manner of hailing preferences! The only way to pre-book a London Taxi is via the Rydo app.
Taking a trip in a London Taxi is an experience, it is not just a mode of transport. Anyone who has ever travelled to London remembers a trip in a London Taxi.
The drivers are knowledgeable and engaging, the taxis are roomy, and provide a premium experience. Everyone feels special in a London Taxi.
Our cars and drivers and your comfort all combine to create a taxi experience that is second to none. London taxis deliver a better experience.
