Vehicle descriptionA hackney or hackney carriage (also called a cab, black cab, hack or London taxi) is a carriage or automobile for hire. A hackney of a more expensive or high class was called a remise. The name hackney carriage today refers to a taxi cab licensed by the Public Carriage Office, local authority or the Department of the Environment depending on region of the country. Historically four-door saloon cars have been highly popular as hackney carriages, but with disability regulations growing in strength and some councils offering free licensing for disabled-friendly vehicles, many operators are now opting for wheelchair-adapted taxis such as The London Taxi Company (LTI).
