Test Drive Events

November 10, 2017

Cab Direct is pleased to announce that there’ll be 3 test drive events taking place in November and December in Bristol, Milton Keynes and Manchester. These events will offer customers the opportunity to put a selection of our products through their paces. Depending on the venue, you’ll be able to test drive some of our purpose-built products from Ford, Peugeot and Volkswagen.

A Good Time To Upgrade

Bristol taxi drivers are upgrading their vehicles in advance of taxi regulation changes in the city and following the success of a test drive event in early November, we’re hosting another event by popular demand.

Since its inception 50 years ago, Milton Keynes has become a major commercial hub with many blue-chip companies headquartered there. Due to the grid style road layout, taxis have become a crucial part of the public transport infrastructure. Milton Keynes Council are encouraging all Private Hire operators to include wheelchair accessible vehicles in their fleet, meaning it’s a good time to consider upgrading.

Manchester is a city that took the legendary Peugeot E7 to its heart, this iconic product can be seen on ranks across the city. Our new Ford ProCab™ builds on the success of its illustrious predecessor with leading edge design, a technologically advanced chassis and extremely spacious interior.

Come and see us on the following dates, times and locations:

Thursday 23rd November 10am till 3pm – Showcase Car Park, Avonmeads, Bristol, BS2 OSP

Tuesday 28th November 10am till 4pm – Jaipur Restaurant Car Park, Grafton House, Grafton Gate East, Milton Keynes, MK9 1AT

Thursday 14th December 10am till 3pm – Power League, 20 Union St, Manchester M12 4JD
