Further to the publication of my Taxi and Private Hire Action Plan, I have asked TfL to work with the DfT to produce this guidance by spring 2017.

TfL held a meeting with the DfT in the summer, when it was agreed that TfL will lead on preparing guidance. TfL has commissioned customer focus groups to understand issues surrounding ridesharing which will inform the content of this guidance.
