Be Safe in Birmingham

Use a reputable taxi firm and make sure the firms logo is on the vehicle when it arrives.

Never get into an unlicensed vehicle. Licensed vehicles have either a yellow or white plate on the rear attached to the bumper. This plate has their registration number and Solihull Council license number on it. In the event of a problem you will need these numbers.

If you have booked by mobile phone, A2B will text you free of charge on the taxis arrival with the registration number, make, model and colour of the vehicle. This is a service for your safety to make sure you get in the correct vehicle.

A2B always runs on the meter. If your driver doesn’t turn the meter on, refuse to pay and contact our office on 0121 733 3000.

If you have booked a taxi with A2B it is easy to identify the driver and solve any issue quickly. If you flag a car down or collect one on a rank then we wouldn’t be able to identify the driver and won’t be able to help you with any issues.

A four seat car costs less than a five, six or seven seat vehicle ( there are extra charges for more than 4 people ).

Not all taxi companies charge the same. Be aware other companies may be more expensive or charge a lot more at peak times!
