Boro Taxis is embarking on a £2m programme of investment to update and renew its fleet of vehicles.
The business has already taken delivery of a number of Skoda Octavias and Ford Tourneos worth around £500,000, cementing its place as the largest private hire firm on Teesside.
Boro Taxis will receive the keys to the remaining vehicles, worth a total of £1.5m, before the end of the year.
Owner Mohammed Bashir said: “Whilst this is an investment for our customers, to provide them with a comfortable and modern ride, it is also an investment for our drivers, providing them with new, more efficient vehicles.
“This programme of investment in our fleet demonstrates our confidence in the local market, and in the long term prosperity of Tees Valley as a whole.
“Boro Taxis has come a long way since we started with just three cars more than 30 years ago. Continued investment in vehicles and people is the key to our success, along with ensuring that our drivers are able to provide the very best in customer service.”
