Capital Call

Capital Call Service Information

Capital Call was introduced by TFL as an addition to Taxicard in the boroughs where black cabs are scarce, and currently operates in Bexley, Ealing, Enfield, Haringey, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Lambeth, Lewisham, Merton and Southwark. You will be given an annual travel budget of £200, to spend how you wish on Capital Call trips booked through the call centre.

You must be a member of Taxicard to use Capital Call.

When you make a booking, Capital Call arranges for a local minicab firm to collect you. You will pay a flat fare of £1.50 for anything up to £11.80. The remainder, in this case £10.30, is taken from a £200 per year budget allocated to each member by TfL.

Multiple swiping is permitted on Capital Call for fares of up to £59, which is five times the trip subsidy.

  • For trips up to the value of £11.80 you pay £1.50
  • For trips between £11.81 and £23.60 you pay £3.00
  • For trips between £23.61 and £35.40 you pay £4.50
  • For trips between £35.41 and £47.20 you pay £6.00
  • For trips between £47.21 and £59.00 you pay £7.50

Call Capital Call to register on 020 7275 2446.

It is also worth noting that Transport for London (TfL) is proposing to withdraw the scheme from April 2015. There was a consultation early this year (2014) but a decision has to be made yet. Keep an eye on this.

Further information about the scheme can be found online.
