A driving force

In 2011, Central Taxis became the UK’s first Carbon Neutral black taxi company, and we’ve worked hard to retain accreditation ever since. We offset the emissions from every pre-booked journey through the purchase of carbon credits and investing in sustainability projects.

The hands on the wheel

Our award-winning company operates as a cooperative, and is owned and operated by more than 1,000 members and drivers from the local community.

As well as undergoing police checks, our drivers are fully vetted and licensed by Edinburgh council, and must pass a detailed topographical test (the ‘Knowledge’), meaning they know the city better than anyone – so no relying on dodgy sat-navs!
