TfL introduces new taxi ranks in support of Night Tube

TfL Briefing

  • Nine new ranks supplement 18 existing ranks at Night Tube stations

Transport for London (TfL), in partnership with boroughs across the Capital, has introduced nine new taxi ranks, bringing the total number of Night Tube taxi ranks to 27.  Taxis offer a safe and reliable service to the public, particularly late at night, and increasing the number of ranks at Night Tube stations give customers even greater choice when completing the final stage of their journey home.

The new ranks have been appointed at nine Night Tube stations on the Central line: Fairlop, Wanstead, Hainault, South Woodford, Woodford, East Acton, West Acton, North Acton and White City.  In total 27 Night Tube stations – across the Central and Victoria lines – are served by taxi ranks.  Taxis are wheelchair accessible, can travel in bus lanes and can carry five, and in some cases six, passengers.  All taxi drivers have undergone the Knowledge of London, the most challenging taxi test in the world, and have had an enhanced criminal records check.

Helen Chapman, TfL’s General Manager of Taxi and Private Hire, said:

“We are pleased to have been able to increase the number of ranks at Tube stations.  We are working with the taxi trade to ensure the ranks are well-served, giving customers choice to complete their journey.  Taxis are an integral part of the Capital’s transport network, which are safe and driven by people with an unparalleled knowledge of the Capital’s roads. “
