Birmingham’s oldest taxi firm, TOA Taxis, sees increased success in recent months

Birmingham’s oldest taxi firm, TOA Taxis, has experienced increased success in recent months with high hopes for the next twelve months.

TOA’S growing success has seen them increase their fleets by fifty five drivers, bringing the total number of drivers to just under 400 across Birmingham City Centre, whilst decreasing TOA driver membership fees.

A major factor in this increased growth has been largely due to the securing of a coveted contract with The NEC as the official taxi service provider for the NEC site, which includes the NEC, Genting Arena and Resorts World Birmingham, back in July 2015. Another factor has been the collapse of international taxi brand and competitor, ComCab in Birmingham, creating increased business for TOA Taxis, along with the installation of Chip & Pin payment terminals in all TOA cabs to offset the threat from other competitors.

Mohammed Khalil, New Driver for TOA Taxis comments:

I’ve been a taxi driver for 20 years in Birmingham now. I was previously a driver for ComCab in Birmingham before it collapsed. I’m very happy and excited to be part of TOA Taxis. It’s a well-run company that’s moving with the times and led by an able management team.

TOA Taxis hopes to continue its success over the next twelve months with projections to increase the fleet by up to a further fifty new drivers. Turnover is also expected to increase by a further fifteen percent by next year.
