Here is a snippet of our story
What started in the 1980’s with 34 cars and a paper booking system, this has now grown into a foundation of our community with 2000 drivers and over 2.4 million riders. People and community are at the heart of City Taxis. Our timeline is an interesting story of partnerships and innovation.
City was established
We partnered with Sheffield City Council to support school runs. In the last 40 years, we have done an estimated 10 million school runs.
We went from a paper based system to a two-way radio and you will all remember the location calling “anybody Wincobank…”
Our partnership with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals began
From the great work we did with STH we were appointed the travel company of choice by Yorkshire Ambulance Service and have completed an estimated 2 million journeys for them.
This was a great year for growth as we merged City Cars, Alpha Taxis and Regency cars to become as we are known today CITY taxis. We now had a fleet of 180 cars and our HQ was on City Road.
Growth continued and we now had a fleet of 250 cars and 25 staff so we had to move to larger premises at 912 City Road
Arnie joined the team as a telephonist. He is now City’s Managing Director.
We are now really moving with technology and we have launched our first booking app. Growth bestows again and we need to move to larger premises so we move HQ to Attercliffe where we currently are today.
We merge with Mercury and our fleet grows to a whopping 1400.
We bought A1 and we have our first office in Barnsley. We bought Club Taxis and we now have an office in Chesterfield
We buy 75 cars and Tower to have our first office in Derby.
We launch our electric vehicle trial, rebrand, and launch citygrab delivery. 2020 is going to be one exciting year.

“Would like to say a big thank you to Sam who works for City Taxis Chesterfield. He takes me to dialysis three days a week, he’s always happy and always cheers me up when I’m down.”
“I have always used City. They’re punctual and every driver knows Sheff like the back of their hand and always polite.”
“I’d find hospital appointment visits with my elderly mother almost impossible without City Taxis. I’d like to thank everyone at the company for giving the excellent service that they all provide. I have not been let down once. Thank you.”
“City Taxis picked me up to take me to the hospital. The driver could have left me to find my own way, but he didn’t. He went to find the room I needed, then took me there safely. What a super star. Would like to say a massive thank you!”
“My elderly mum used City to get home from Morrisons and told the driver she’d not been able to get muffins. Yesterday he delivered two packs to her. I live 4,000 miles away, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this act of kindness.”
