Taxi Sharing

Taxi sharing

Sometimes passengers have a common destination and taxi sharing is of benefit:

  • Passengers pay lower fares for door-to-door journeys than they would if travelling alone
  • If there is a long queue of passengers or a local shortage of taxis, passenger waiting times will be reduced

These arrangements not only benefit customers, but the trade and local communities too:

  • Drivers get more revenue for each trip than they normally would
  • There are fewer taxi trips overall, resulting in less noise, disruption, traffic congestion and pollution

Fixed-fare taxi sharing operates as follows:

  • Regular weekday morning services from Paddington to central London and other important destinations
  • Regular weekday morning services from Euston to central London
  • Services between the All England Lawn Tennis Club and Wimbledon and Southfields Tube stations during the Wimbledon tennis tournament
  • From Buckingham Palace at the end of royal garden parties to destinations around central London
