Government issues Taxi and Private Hire guidance

The Government has published guidance on operating transport services safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. The guidance covers all modes of private and public transport.

Separate guidance has been published for passengers to outline who should be travelling and how social distancing rules should be observed across different points in journeys.

It is important that you review and implement these guidance documents if you are operating a taxi or private hire vehicle business, or are a self-employed driver.

There are sections relevant to the taxi and private hire vehicle sector in several documents, please view this letter from the Department of Transport with an annex document to support you in navigating the guidance.
