Covid – 19
Bradford taxis should use their safety equipment – screens and sanitiser.
This is to help protect people from Covid-19 and help people to feel safe.
To catch a taxi, you can:
- book a taxi from a private hire taxi business e.g.
AllOver Taxis Girlington – 01274 488595
Barkerend Taxis & Minibuses – 01274 391676
Colin’s Private Hire – 01274 681811
Heaton Private Hire – 01274 499125
Manningham Taxis Bradford – 01274 728999
- Use Uber
- use a taxi rank in the city centre
There are taxi ranks on many of the main streets, including outside the two train stations.
They usually have a sign showing you where to wait.
Only Hackney Carriages are allowed to pick up passengers at a taxi rank, or on the street.
Bradford Hackney Carriages are always white with a green stripe + green taxi sign on top.
Private hire taxis look like normal cars. They should also have a sign telling you the name of the company and that it is licensed by Bradford Council.
You can ask for a large taxi (for up to 6 people, or for a wheelchair user).
Hints for Staying Safe
Most taxi drivers are, of course, legal and safe. Make sure you stay safe.
- Only get in to a taxi if it is a Hackney carriage or a taxi booked in advance.
- Always check the driver has a badge. This shows they are licensed.
- Do not wait for a taxi on your own. If possible, share a taxi with friends
- Sit in the back seat, if you are alone.
