About The LPHCA
The LPHCA started life representing Private Hire Operators only in London. We now however independently visit hundreds of Minicab, Chauffeur and Executive Car Companies including some Taxi Operators in more and more parts of the UK. Member Companies are Graded up to 5 Star, with a series of 'status indicators' for companies able to demonstrate special services like Chauffeur, Executive or Disabled Vehicle provision and only Graded Companies can use our 'Safe in Our Hands' logo.
Aims and Objectives
The LPHCA seeks to promote and encourage high levels of service, safety and standards to provide the travelling public with a safe and reliable service in 'door to door' Transport. We do this by working closely with operators, politicians, regulators and consumer / safety groups such as The Suzy Lamplugh Trust. The key to our work lies in getting consensus from our members and then lobbying hard to get political take up of our ideas. Notable successes include: Getting Licensing in London, Removing Congestion Charges in London and Manchester, Reducing ticketing and fines on Red Routes Preventing poor legislation.
