On Tuesday last week, we went along to Ubiquitous HQ to see the grand unveiling of our Taxi, wrapped in all its assist-Mi glory and meet Vince, our fantastic driver. It was great to finally see our symbol of accessibility, ready to hit the streets of London!
London’s Black Cabs are well respected as the most professional taxi service in the world, but a lesser known fact is that most are fully accessible to those with disabilities. Virtually all Black cabs are equipped with wheelchair ramps and hearing loops, providing a lifeline to those navigating their way around London and that can’t easily use the underground.
People can use cabs to join up their journey easily and efficiently, and with our continued partnership with Gett, Taxis now provide the smart solution to travel in the capital.
We want to use our branded Taxi as a platform to build awareness of issues around accessibility and the opportunities that assist-Mi offers service providers. We don’t just aim to make the journey accessible, we strive to make the venue that the user is visiting accessible too! We know that assistance can be made smarter, transport more connected and London more inclusive – roll on the #AccessRevolution!
A massive thank you to Ubiquitous for their generous support and extremely professional service.
