Our most accessible taxi ever

TX ensures convenience & ease of use for all passengers

Accessibility is an important feature of the iconic Black Cab & we take our duty to provide a safe, purpose-built vehicle with access to all very seriously

Fold-away wheelchair ramp

The easy to use, strong ramp is designed to ensure easy access for wheelchair passengers. Entry is further aided by the shallow ramp angle of just 11 degrees (to a typical kerb). Prominent lips to each edge help to ensure the wheelchair’s trajectory and prevent the wheels from leaving the ramp.

Restraints

Wheelchair users may remain in their wheelchair when travelling in a taxi thanks to our comprehensive restraint system in-line with the ISO 10542 standard.

Lightings

Bright LED lighting has been used throughout, from floor lighting, puddle lamps and even reading lamps which can be adjusted for brightness by simply pressing and holding the on/off button

Folding Integrated Step

The integrated wheelchair ramp houses a clever folding mechanism which quickly transforms it into an access step, reducing the step height by half enabling passengers to exit the taxi with greater ease.

Unique Swivel Seat

Sometimes restricted mobility impacts the ability to twist so to provide easier entry and exit, the TX features an easily accessible swivel seat which pivots outside of the taxi for better access.

High visibility contrasting grab handles & seat edges

Bright, non-slip handles to aid the entry and exit of all passengers, especially those with limited vision, while colourful seat edges help ensure passengers safely find their seat upon entry.

Loud & clear

On entering the taxi hearing impaired passengers are able to communicate visually with drivers thanks to the clear partition. Once inside, the digital intercom features an induction loop, allowing hearing aid wearers to listen to the driver clearly, the channel is also marked on both sides of the taxi with visible labelling.

Sure footing

The interior floor is completely flat, without intrusion, and covered in a slip-resistant material. Thanks to generous internal dimensions there is sufficient room to easily rotate the wheelchair user into a comfortable forward-facing position.
