Street Cars Offer New Manchester Students A Safe Passage
 

PROMOTION

MANCHESTER taxi firm Street Cars started in 2002 as a family business with just three vehicles. Just over ten years later, they are now the largest, fastest growing fleet in the city with 500 vehicles including saloons, estate cars and minibuses.

Despite their size, they maintain their original aim of providing customers with a safe, comfortable and affordable service. By investing back into the business, they have recently acquired a new state of the art call centre and office space. They have also embraced social media and use modern technology to offer more efficient ways to book and pay for your journey.

In partnership with Student Unions, they operate a ‘Safe Taxi Scheme’ whereby students can offer University ID in lieu of payment if they're really stuck to get home.

Their new free App for iPhone and Android allows customers to book their cab with the option of selecting a map position or simply typing in a street name or postcode. Customers can then track their car in ‘real time’, so you'll never be palmed off with a dismissive 'it's on it's way' phone call.  Booking is easy with the option of selecting your map position or simply typing in a street name or postcode.

Street Cars is the official Private Hire Taxi Supplier for the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, Salford University and the Royal Northern College of Music. In partnership with Student Unions, they operate a ‘Safe Taxi Scheme’ whereby students can offer University ID in lieu of payment if they're really stuck to get home. All students with a valid University I.D or NUS card are entitled to 10% discount off their metered fare.

Other safety measures include strict driver checks, clearly marked and licensed cabs and the same rate applies day or night, so fares don’t increase after midnight.

Manchester – Blackpool Please Beach in a saloon car (seats 1-4) £90, or a minibus (seats 5-8) £130
