Taxis & Private Hire

TfL have four key responsibilities for taxi and private hire services in London.

Find out about the related services for customers on the Taxis & minicab page.


TfL set regulations and policies for taxi (black cab) and private hire (minicab and chauffeur) services to protect customers, and ensure vehicles are safe, accessible and meet strict environmental standards.

For taxi services, TfL is also responsible for setting regulated taxi fares and we work with London boroughs to appoint taxi ranks across London.

Policy decisions are subject to public consultations, customer research, and/or engagement with interested parties, including the taxi and private hire industries.
