New look for black taxis


By Roisin McManus

West Belfast Taxi Association are ringing in the changes this week with new signage for their seven seater cabs.

This is just one of the big changes for the local taxi firm who also have new vehicles and additional services available to their customers.

West Belfast Taxis have recently received DOE approval for the new signs for their seven seaters of which there are currently eight in silver, red, blue and black.

Manager of West Belfast Taxis, Stephen Long, said that the new signs are a welcome development.

“The signage is on the seven seaters only and from a business point of view it is to make customers more aware that the seven seaters are available. This has been a personal investment from the drivers.

“We are also working on a prototype for the other taxis and once this is approved we will hopefully bring it on board.

“We are also offering additional services, we occasionally do private hire, and are doing a lot of work with the Belfast Education and Library Board and residential homes. We make no difference between disabled and able-bodied passengers in terms of price.

“We are constantly looking to improve our service and our customer awareness,” he added.

A member of staff at Dympna Mews on the Glen Road, which avails of the taxi service, said: “We use the wheelchair friendly taxis, the service is dependable and reliable even at short notice and I think that a great service is being provided.”
