The total cost of taxi and private hire vehicles usage by Transport for London including Tube Lines is:

 

Type

2013/2014

2014/2015/YTD

Radio Taxis

£4,664,394.85

Travel & Expenses

£30,767.96

£19,426.72

Total

£2,536,118.47

 

All taxis booked through the London Underground Staff Taxi Contract with Radio Taxis are for operational reasons – to get station staff or train drivers to their stations or depots on time when no other form of public transport is available.  This is not a door to door service; multiple staff are picked up on fixed routes.
