The City of London has changed its regulations governing vehicles for hire, in order to ensure persons with disabilities are not charged extra fees.

Under the new law, all cabs, accessible cabs and limousines will not be able to charge a higher fee to persons with disabilities.

As a new season of Vehicle for Hire licensing begins, City staff remind drivers and passengers of a regulation amendment to the Vehicle for Hire By-law.

Every Broker shall submit to the Licence Manager a schedule of fares for all orders for transportation services except those made through mobile applications (apps), including any discounts, promotions, or other similar marketing advertisements.

Every Cab, Accessible Cab and Limousine (Executive) shall have posted in the interior of the vehicle, a public notification notice, supplied by the municipality and visible to the passengers, stating that persons with disabilities cannot be charged a higher fare or additional fee for the storage of mobility aids.

The City of London is providing vehicles for hire a sticker to attach to their window, so that all customers are aware of this.
