Black Cabs

Black Cabs are the only taxi you can hail from the street (though they now come in other colours as well). With the "for hire" sign lit, the driver is obliged to stop for you.
Black cabs are administered by the MET, so standards are high, drivers must pass a stiff exam in the "Knowledge" of London and are honour bound to take the shortest route. Black cabs can be quite expensive though, especially after midnight and if you get stuck in traffic as they run on meters.

Book in advance with Radio Taxis on (+44) 020 7272 0272 or Dial a Cab on (+44) 020 7253 5000, both run 24-hour services for black cabs. Complaints or Inquires should be made to the Public Carriage Office on (+44) 020 7230 1631 (lost property (+44) 020 7833 0996).
