A Kosovan taxi company has been inundated with bookings thanks to the arrival of the first 15 London Taxis to the capital city.
City based Taxi Company Elm Group sh.p.k. have been operating the iconic vehicles since the 12th February 2010 under the London Taxi Service brand and has already secured over 5,000 bookings.
Popularity of the vehicle has soared as passengers book the taxi to take a ride into Prishtina, travel just for pleasure or to experience the unique feeling that riding in a London Taxi provides. Passengers have also commented that they prefer the iconic vehicles to existing taxis and that the capital city has a professional look with the presence of the world renowned vehicles.
Previously people have been limited to travelling in standard cars. Many of which tend to be aged up to 16 years and cannot seat five people comfortably. In addition, the vehicles don’t match the comfort and privacy that the London Taxi provides.
Elm Group have fully trained drivers who are skilled in offering a top class customer experience and making sure that passengers have a safe, enjoyable journey. In the London Taxi, up to 5 passengers sit facing each other in their own private compartment with superior leg room, excellent visibility and a range of features designed for their comfort.
Luan Berisha, Managing Director of Elm Group, said: “We decided to work with the London Taxi Company simply because the TX4 is the best vehicle in its field.
“The city is buzzing with the thrill of having the TX4’s in Prishtina and already residents are embracing the option of travelling in style, comfort and having the added benefit of privacy when travelling.”
LTI’s International International Market Development Director, Matthew Cheyne said: “It has been a rewarding experience working with Elm Group to bring the iconic TX4 to the people in the city of Prishtina.”
“It comes as no surprise to us to hear the excellent passenger feedback as LTI purposely manufacturers its taxis to provide a pleasurable experience.”
Luan added: “Elm Group in co-operation with the London Taxi Company would like to extend its sincerest gratitude’s to the Municipality of Prishtina for their support for licensing ELM Group and also NLB Bank for financing the project and their continued support.”
