Answered By: 
The Mayor

Yes. 

As I am sure you are aware, the department regularly consults on a number of topics. Recently this has included the Private Hire Regulations Review and, in progress at present, a consultation in respect of payment card acceptance in taxis.

In addition to consultations, senior representatives from TfL's Taxi and Private Hire, alongside other TfL colleagues, hold regular meetings with both taxi and private hire trade representatives at which the performance of TfL is discussed together with statistics relating to licensing and enforcement, as well as wider policy initiatives.
