Welcome to Hackney Direct
Hackney Direct was founded in 2004 by two experienced taxi drivers who wanted to change the way customers ordered taxis. Hackney Direct wanted to move away from the automated cab booking systems and deliver a more personal service. Using automated booking systems, we feel the customers were missing that personal touch and decided to do something about it. Hackney Direct puts the customer through directly to one of our many experienced taxi drivers, who rest assured, know exactly what they’re doing.
Within months of launching, Hackney Direct was a massive success with customers and from then on out, we’ve expanded our fleet and service to meet the demand. We now operate over 50 licensed 5, 6 and 7 seat hackney carriages. We aren’t a private hire company, we only operate fully licensed hackney carriages with wheelchair accessibility.
