  1. There is alot more to be done eg in the surrounding areas people are plying for hire especially at kitts green bj’s bingo birmingham have told certain people but they are not bothered…hope some action is taken bham drivers and solihull drivers from 24/7 radio cars especially this taxi office is also sending jobs that are supposed to be for brum drives to solihull drivers by transferring calls to there new office in solihull even though the job may be in brum and the customer even may have rang the brum number hence breaking the law.

    • they are also have meters in cars which they call fare calculators and they insist there drivers use even though they have not been approved by the bham council and yet the council insist that a fare table should be displayed for passengers but this company feel you dont need to do so.
