City Taxis Corporate Bookings offer to Chamber Members
1st December 2016
City Taxis are the UK's third largest independent licensed private hire company.
From our beautiful glass and steel state of the art call centre in the Don Valley, 1750 drivers operate throughout South Yorkshire and Derbyshire following recent mergers with leading private hire firms in Barnsley and Chesterfield. With over a two thousand seven hundred corporate accounts, we are well positioned to look after your staff, your company and your clients. Whether we are collecting VIP clients in our E-Class Mercedes from the train station or dropping them back to the airport in prestige vehicles, delivering samples or important documents or picking up a food order for staff working late, our service is prompt, friendly and flexible. We work with some of the country's leading employers such as Outokumpu, Forgemasters and Irwin Mitchell. We even get a dose of stardom with sports and entertainment stars, the likes of the BBC's Come Dine With Me using our cabs to transport and score contestants. We operate the Safe Taxi Scheme for both universities and football clubs, provide wheelchair accessible vehicles for vulnerable adults and disabled people and are the sole provider of life-saving Renal Transport to NHS South Yorkshire. City are proud to have the best trained, Enhanced DBS- checked drivers in South Yorkshire, who have all undertaken the industry- recognised Passenger Assisted Training Scheme and most have a BTEC in professional taxi driving. Additionally, our City- uniformed drivers have all been trained in supporting vulnerable adults, safeguarding and basic first aid. Our offer enables local businesses to travel on an account basis and be sent an invoice on monthly basis with 28-day payment terms. We treat our account customers to a priority booking and dispatch line, 24/7 and 365 days. City have a fully manned office email, web booker and account history system customers can access. You can follow tracked vehicles live on a map with ring or text back and call the driver direct with no phone number disclosure. And when you book with City, you can be proud to buy local not global! We are fully signed up to Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 where we pledge to add value back to the community. And we do! Our local staff and drivers generate a cool £1m a week for the local economy. In addition, we sponsor many city region awards and host our own charitable events such as our famous annual Golf Day. We offer generous support to local charities who will directly benefit from the donating 'nudge' provided by our new RIIDE App, which will together raise tens of thousands each year. In addition we are committed to sustaining Sheffield's proud sporting heritage and youth fitness to benefit the wider Sheffield community through our community initiatives, sponsorship and role in Sheffield Wednesday's Community Foundation.
