New ProCab™ Gears Up in Glasgow

January 31, 2019

Following the highly anticipated launch of the new model ProCab, a surge of excitement has spread among drivers in the taxi trade.

We caught up with Ronnie McWilliams, who’s been working the ranks of Glasgow for an impressive 12 years and is now proud owner of the new model ProCab™.  He gives us a first-hand insight on life behind the wheel of the latest generation hackney taxi.

He said:  “I collected my ProCab™ in December. It’s been a great taxi over the festive period and a real hit with my customers.”

Covering Comfort & Accessibility

With a busy working schedule, Ronnie needed a reliable and efficient taxi while working a variety of pick-ups.

He said:  “I normally cover the city centre but there’s plenty demand for pick-ups at football matches, concerts and events.”

Ronnie’s top priority is catering to the needs of his passengers is and the well-thought-out ProCab™ doesn’t disappoint.  With its six-seat rear compartment and the option of a double seat up front, ProCab™ can accommodate up to eight passengers in comfort and style.

The celebrated EasyGlide™ ramp is integrated with the passenger compartment floor, offering optimum accessibility for wheelchair access.  High-visibility grab handles along with illuminated, electric side-steps on both sides add to ProCab’s easy access and safety element.

Ronnie commented:  “There’s plenty of space for passengers and their luggage.  The pull-out ramp is perfect for wheelchair users and is quick and easy to use.

“Another great feature is the illuminated side-steps.  It gets the passengers in and out safely, especially during the dark winter days.”

Fuller List of Features

The latest model ProCab™ boasts some clever new features as standard including an 8” colour touchscreen with satellite navigation, heated front seats, electric side-steps and a streamlined taxi pod.

Ronnie likes to take on board the latest technology and said:  “The touchscreen is a great feature and is simple to use whenever needed.”


Ronnie can’t commend his ProCab™ enough.  Popping down for a visit to the Cab Direct HQ, he said:  “The reason I chose the ProCab™ over other taxis was its popular reputation for having great wheelchair access.

“It also has bags of room for luggage behind the passenger seats.  Luggage had to be kept in with the passengers in the cabs I’ve had previously.”

Ronnie also highlights the service he’s received from Cab Direct.  He said: “From start to finish the service has been fantastic. I was kept up to date from putting down my deposit to collecting my new ProCab™.  I’d definitely recommend Cab Direct to other drivers in the trade.”
