Private hire and taxi booking despatch system providers Cordic Ltd are supporting the Licensed Private Hire Car Association (LPHCA) in a bid to raise funds towards a Judicial Review in the High Court against Transport for London (TfL).
TfL have set a new fee structure which could be detrimental to private hire operators across London.
As quoted from the LPHCA’s website, “We believe the new fee structure for private hire operator licensing, introduced by TfL, is unreasonable, unnecessary and unfair, as having just one extra vehicle makes fees go from £30,000 to £150,000.”
The ‘Fighting Fund’ has been set up to help pay towards the Review at the High Court and has so far passed the phase one target of £100,000, thanks to the contributions from others in and around London (as of Tuesday 5 December 2017).
As quoted from the website: “We are calling on the entire Private Hire Industry to unite against measures that could wipe out many, many operators, leaving the futures of many drivers, industry suppliers and others connected to the industry in jeopardy too.”
