history

The private hire taxi company that’s been in business since 1966 and in September 2014 was voted Derbyshire’s best taxi company

We are Derby’s biggest taxi and minibus company with over 350 vehicles situated all over Derby – so you’re guaranteed a taxi in no time at all

We were the first taxi company in Derby to charge normal rates on public holidays such as bank holiday, Christmas period and New Years Eve when everybody else was charging nearly double what they normally charge

We offer a wide variety of vehicles including standard 4 passenger saloon taxis, estate cars, executive and wedding cars, 8 seater minibuses, 8 seater party buses and 15 seater buses

As well as a general taxi and minibus company we also specialise in Priority Account Work for businesses

environment

We’re 100% committed to improving the efficiency of our fleet of vehicles and reducing the environmental impact.

The most important part of this commitment is our automatically allocating taxi dispatch system which chooses the closes possible taxi for the pickup which reduces dead mileage

Altogether these improvements have reduced our CO2 per journey by over 20%.
