Better quality, better service, worldwide

Taxis have been around for a long time, with the first taxi appearing on the streets of European cities more than 400 years ago.

Since the beginning, taxi services have been regulated by authorities for safety, quality and price transparency, providing an essential, and often iconic, public transport service in cities and towns all over the world.   

The taxi industry is being transformed with new technology, services and entrants to markets all over the world. These new services are sometimes legal, but often not.

With all the changes, people still need safe, legal and reliable taxis with clear pricing and good quality service. UpTop is the mark to look for.

A stronger taxi sector

UpTop is a collaborative partnership between many parts of the industry to become more knowledgeable of both potential challenges and their solutions, to share best practices, and to ultimately create a better service that develops our businesses and the service we provide to our customers.

By working together, UpTop also pools ideas and resources to support a fairer and more level regulatory playing field for customers and regulatory authorities alike.
