First Great Western has teamed up with Cabforce to bring prebooked taxis to major stations including London Paddington, Oxford, Bristol Temple Meads and Parkway.
For the first time passengers are able to pre-book their onward taxi rides at the same time as their online train ticket purchase. By pre-booking, customers can be sure that a taxi is waiting for them at their station destination – no need to queue and the price is guaranteed.Providing a true door-to-door service has previously been impossible in the UK due to the fragmentation of taxi supply. Cabforce consolidates the market by partnering with certified local fleets and providing a unified ride experience with 24/7 customer service in 40+ cities across UK and Europe. 

Cabforce makes fast and reliable pre-booking possible because it has a technology unlike any other in the industry – its real time pricing platform determines the allinclusive rate for any trip at the time of booking.Stephen Bradshaw, General Manager UK & Ireland stated, “We are thrilled to partner with First Great Western. Train companies have long been seeking to offer customers a door-to-door product, and with Cabforce they can easily offer a complete travel experience”.
