As it is not a statutory requirement for private hire vehicles to be wheelchair accessible, TfL has not historically recorded this information but it did start recording this from January 2016 when vehicles were presented for inspection at one of their vehicle inspection centres.

From 2 January 2016 to 15 July 2016, 237 wheelchair-accessible private hire vehicles were inspected out of a total of 49,136 private hire vehicle inspections.
