These Plans For October Will Make It Easier To Pay For London Black Cabs

Plans have been revealed to ensure that all black cabs will take card payment later on this year. Further proposals from the taxi trade include having all new taxis as Zero Emissions Capable from 2018, super-fast wifi pilots starting in cabs within two years and more taxi ranks at Night Tube stops. In order to make these happen, however, a big commitment from London’s next mayor is said to be needed.

Steve McNamara of the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association said: “What we are launching is London’s taxi revolution. [It’s] a guarantee to make the best taxi service in the world even better. Faster, smarter and greener is our offer and our ask of the next Mayor of London.” Let’s keep our fingers crossed, then, that the future mayor will have even greener ideals (and better hair?) than the last!
