Find out how to support taxi drivers in St Helens Borough.
A dedicated page has details of taxi and #hackney carriage drivers who are continuing to offer services, including prescriptions and essentials collections among others.
Gold Standard St Helens Council licensed drivers are among those offering a wide range of discounts for key workers and the website lists offers available. There is also advice about how they have enhanced measures to keep taxis clean and are applying social distancing measures where possible to make travelling with them safer.
You can also find the taxi drivers operating on the St Helens is Open portal at www.sthelens.gov.uk/sthelensisopen
Councillor Jeanie Bell, Cabinet Member for Safer Communities, said: “Our Gold Standard taxi drivers are very much key workers in their own right by helping to get front line staff to work or going above and beyond to help those in isolation. They are also one of the many businesses backing our St Helens is Open portal encouraging everyone to back our businesses in their time of need.
“These are people who live and work in our town and we’ve been supporting many through #KnowYourRide so please make sure to support our local businesses who need our help more than ever, especially when social distancing measures are removed. Our heartfelt thanks goes to the drivers and companies who show how we are working together in the face of these difficult times.”
