New agreement - Taxis

Nov 25, 2013

LUPC is pleased to announce that its new agreement for ‘Taxi Type Services for London and Surrounding Counties’ is now available for use by Members.

The agreement is split into three lots: Black Cabs; Executive Cars; and both Cabs and Cars. It includes five approved suppliers: CityFleet Networks Ltd; OneTransport Ltd; GetTaxi Ltd; Greentomato Cars; and W1 T/A Westone Cars.

The agreement originally developed from a requirement within LUPC’s non-higher education membership, as there was previously no agreement in place either through the regional consortia or Government Procurement Service for taxi services. Institutions agreed to participate in a collaborative effort, and the sourcing strategy was designed to provide solutions to meet the requirements of all LUPC Members.

The agreement offers competitive pricing; improved safety for passengers; greater control and reduction of travel expenses; and high level environmental options for vehicles. The new agreement also complements LUPC’s existing Business Travel Management agreement.
