Requirements from Boroughs
It is recommended that Boroughs set out
programmes in their LIPs to review any transport
contracts (for school travel, special needs, social
services etc) to check that the contracting bodies
take steps to ensure that vulnerable passengers are
always carried to high standards by drivers who
have been CRB checked. (With the licensing of
private hire trade in London, it is encouraged that
LIPs identify how Boroughs will ensure these
contracts are with licensed private hire operators
which use licensed drivers and vehicles.)

It is recommended that Boroughs ensure LIP
proposals are prepared in accordance with PCO
best practice guidelines, to include:
- provision, especially at key sites of new and
improved taxi ranks.
- identification of key points of contact.
