Book Ahead And Stand Out From The Crowd



Wiltshire Council is encouraging residents to book their taxi home in advance of going out in the evening to avoid groups of people congregating in taxi areas or queuing at taxi ranks.

As a result of the 10pm curfew for hospitality venues, more people are leaving venues at the same time creating more demand for taxis and larger groups at taxi areas, which could lead to a higher risk of transmission of COVID-19. 

By booking in advance and avoiding the queue, residents can protect themselves and others - reducing the time they are in closer proximity to others and helping everyone to continue their normal activities in the safest way possible.
