For Taxis

Taxi drivers are at the heart of communities across the UK. So, in Greater Manchester, we’re working in partnership with Transport for Greater Manchester to ensure taxi drivers have access to a network of over 100 taxi-only charging bays.

We want to:

  • Make charging easier
  • Encourage more taxi drivers to switch to greener and more sustainable vehicles
  • Make local communities everywhere healthier and happier
