As the licensing and regulatory body for the taxi and private hire trade in London, TfL's primary concern is public safety.

A driver or prospective driver is free to choose whichever vehicle suits their personal needs and budget providing it is able to secure a vehicle licence. TfL does not hold figures on the average cost per mile to run particular makes of private hire vehicles. 

The September/October edition of TfL's magazine for licensees, OnRoute, includes an article on how to choose a private hire vehicle. It is available online at:
