The other day I posted about the London style black cabs in Lebanon and awhile ago the communications manager from National New Dawn (the company that runs these cabs) posted the following comment:

We are offering a 5 stars Taxi service with many options for free within the ride,we are offering safety, comfortable, options a 5 seats car, as you know taxi driver in Lebanon are the most frustrating drivers, who would tell you his life story during the ride without even asking him, our drivers at London taxi have one job and one mission to take you to the right place at the right time during a safe comfortable ride. And we are planning to have the latest model and only that and import the latest technologies and cars to Lebanon from London. There are also plans to run female-only taxis (Pink Cabs) and have vehicles capable of carrying nine passengers. The new taxi service is the result of a need to upgrade the transportation services in Lebanon, the Lebanese are looking for a comfortable, clean, safe ride as well as the tourist. The Cars will include wifi connection, 5 seats, separate glass between driver and passengers for safety and privacy, credit card payment , 17 inch LCD screen. Sometime Wheelchair access in some taxis can be a real problem but the London Taxi has a shallow ramp due to its low floor line, making it suitable for both manual and electric wheelchair users to safely get in and out of the vehicle straight on to, or from, the pavement. The passenger compartment is spacious and designed to accommodate wheelchair users easily. Once in place, the wheelchair and passenger are secured using special harnesses and expendable seat belts.
