To Transport Minister and Chancellor of Exchequer

This petition is open to all taxi drivers, customers and members of the public

Petition text

Taxi drivers are in the highest risk category for catching Covid-19. Many taxi owners are self employed and did not qualify for the small business grant of £10k. A grant would ensure we can make our vehicles safer for both driver and passengers.

Please let us access the £10k small business grant.

Why is this important?

Making a safer environment for one of the highest risk occupations in the UK. Our licenced public and private hire taxi services provide a vital support in connecting people with the majority of public hire vehicles supporting wheelchair users. Our customers deserve to travel in the safest of environments and this grant would ensure that owners could make the adjustments at a time where their earnings have been greatly reduced
