During lockdown we have lost around 75% of our work which made us adapt to the changing times. We did this by working with several local businesses that also had to adapt offering a delivery service. This meant some of our drivers could still earn a wage.
We offered to collect customers shopping or prescriptions if they were self isolating for medical reasons.
We also offer a discount for customers who needed to get to and from their vaccination appointments.

A couple of our drivers gave up their time to helped out in the community delivering shopping free of charge around Haxby and another delivered meals as part of the Supper Collective for which he won a Taxi and Private Hire Parliamentary Award after being nominated by Rachael Maskell MP.

All our drivers are following the latest government guidelines to ensure you travel in a COVID safe manner. They all except contactless card payment or to make it easier you can download our booking app and pay via airpay.

As we look to a lockdown free future we will be offering all the jobs you would expect from a private hire taxi company. So if you are booking a long awaited holiday then give us a call to arrange your airport transfers or if you are simply going out into York for the day we will be here to get you home safely.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff and loyal customers for their support throughout the last year.
