Driving in Edinburgh can be frustrating at the best of times due to congestion, road restrictions and limited parking facilities in the town – so people are very much aware of the greenways around the town and along Princes Street. Our taxis can also be used for the collection and delivery of parcels, documents, etc. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Debit and Amex and wheelchair accessible taxis are available on request.


We have 30 telephone lines and the latest technology which allows our Control of Staff to provide a faster response time to customers. With a vast network of greenways in Edinburgh traffic congestion can be an issue but as a black hackney taxi company we have access to these greenways unlike private hire cab companies.

One of Edinburgh’s largest co-operative of licensed hackney taxis and are currently operating a fleet of over 400 vehicles, all of which are regulated by the City of Edinburgh Council. City Cabs (Edinburgh) Limited is a co-operative, owned and operated by the members, this in turn means each member is committed to the long term success of the business and to the City of Edinburgh.
