Taxis and private hire vehicles
Cycling UK View (formal statement of Cycling UK's policy):
- Where taxi and private hire vehicles are adapted to accommodate wheelchairs, a policy should be adopted that allows for the carriage of cycles.
- Where no special adaptations have been made, but there is space to accommodate a cycle, private hire vehicles should have a policy of carrying bikes if there is a perceived demand.
- The fitting of cycle racks to taxis and private hire vehicles, or means to carry cycles inside the cab (i.e .covers and securing straps) should be investigated as a solution to carrying cycles.
