I welcome your announcement on increasing the number of taxi ranks by at least 20 per cent by 2020. Can you outline how many of the taxi ranks will be island taxi ranks?

The commitment to increase the number of taxi ranks by 20 per cent by 2020 does not include island ranks. All potential island ranks are considered on a case-by-case basis and this will often involve designating an existing rank as an island rank.

Two new island rank trials have been recently launched, at Clapham High Street and Archway Station, which TfL is currently monitoring and assessing. Once these trials have been completed, further requests for new island ranks will be considered.
