About taxi in Hackney, book a taxi in Hackney

The London borough of Hackney not only gives its name to Hackney Cab – a term often used for a black taxi these days – but is an ancient borough that has links to Henry VIII and that is located in the north east of the London area. Originally a rural area that was much in vogue in the Tudor period, the region is today a busy and bustling area of London that is worth a visit for its fine architecture and historical past. Beautiful Georgian terraces are the most attractive of the Hackney housing stock and make up a good proportion of the buildings there, lending the area something of a village feel that is difficult to replicate in such a built up area. With the links to cabs it is no surprise that taxi operators abound in the region and there are several operators who use online booking services to make things easier for the consumer.

London taxi and minicab guide


London offers 2 types of taxi services, the black London taxis, also known as the London taxi and minicabs which are also called private hire vehicles.

The main differences between the two is that black london taxis are using a meter to price the ride while minicabs aren’t; Black london taxis can be hailed in the street or at designated taxi ranks while Private hire vehicles and minicabs must be booked in advance either online, at an office, by telephone or email.

Minicab companies are licensed and usually offer a cheaper alternative to the black cab as they do not operate a meter. While minicabs fares are generally reasonable, they are not on a meter, instead you should be quoted in advance while making the booking.

Any person who operates private hire vehicles in the London area must be licensed by Transport for London (TfL). By using a licensed operator passengers can have confidence that the driver and vehicle are also licensed by TfL.
