No Future For Taxis According To The Mayors Transport Strategy Consultation
Proof (as if we need any) posted on TfL website, that as far as the future of transport in London is concerned, the iconic Taxi cab, be it diesel or electric, does not figure in the "Mayor's Transport Strategy Consultation".
The logo above comes from the Mayor's transport strategy consultation. There is a bus, a train, a white delivery van, lots of cyclists, there is even what looks very much like an Uber Prius.....yet, one mode of transport is definitely missing from this web page published illustration.....and that's the Licensed Taxi.
So, after 360 of first class service to the public in London the truth is finally crystal.... The Mayor and TfL have a vision of London's transport future without licensed Taxis.
This is not fake news.
This is not myth or rumour.
Click on the link and go to the web page to see this logo.
But don't just take my word for it, look through the consultation and see if you can find Taxis mentioned....we are not there!
So the Mayor/TfL's vision is a London where people travel on foot, on cycles or on London Transport.....and that's it!
Back to the page illustration:
Apparently the image below originally featured on the Mayor's Transport Strategy publication released last month, but the Mayors office/TfL have edited out the Black Cab for the consultation.
Taxi Leaks Extra Comment :
We now have an arrogant Mayor who won't answer questions from the GLA, failed to turn up for the last Mayor's Q&A session at City Hall and refuses point blank to meet with Taxi trade orgs.
On top of this, we have the commissioner of TfL Mike Brown, who has refused to meet with Licensed Taxi trade Orgs for the past 8 months...
