Private Hire and Taxi Monthly is the leading trade newspaper in the UK for the private hire and hackney carriage industry with a print run of 25,000 copies. The publication has been printed for 24 years and January 2017 saw the 292nd successive monthly edition.
Within its pages are groundbreaking editorials on all facets of the taxi industry, in addition to regular features including a view from the trade [Opinion] and the renowned hackney carriage league tables, to which both licence holders and many council licensing officers refer.
11,000 free copies of the paper are mailed individually to the proprietor of every taxi, private hire and chauffeur company in the UK, as well as a further 2,000 driver subscription copies. The remaining 12,000 are sent by courier nationwide, in shrink-wrapped bundles to council taxi licensing offices, MoT stations, trade associations and garages where drivers may collect them.
Furthermore, readership is extremely high; more than one person reads each copy as the paper does tend to get passed around amongst drivers and it is also available to read online – along with back issues.
Potential readers are also driven to the online copy of the paper via our social media coverage where we currently have over c. 10,000 members of the trade following us on Facebook www.facebook.com/PHTM.Newspaper
Total readership is growing daily and we are also in the process of linking with individual taxi firms across the UK to give their drivers direct access portals.
PHTM also organise the only national Private Hire and Taxi Exhibition in the UK and have done so since 1993. The 2017 show will again be held at the MK Arena in Milton Keynes on Wednesday and Thursday, the 17th and 18th of May 2017.
