Passengers now have the option to book trips with a local operator via the Uber app

Uber has today announced that it is launching Local Cab with two new local operators across the UK, enabling passengers in these areas to book a trip with a local taxi operator via the Uber app.

In Bath and Bradford, Local Cab will run alongside regular Uber-operated services, including UberX, UberXL and Comfort.

Local Cab trips will be passed to the operators in Bath and Bradford to fulfill, and all subsequent support will be provided by them.

Since the company’s successful pilot of Local Cab last year, the product has launched in over 50 locations across the UK.


David Scaramanga, Director at SWOOP

“We’re proud to bring Local Cab to the people of Bath. This provides another way for customers to book with us – and for anyone visiting Bath that already uses the Uber app, Local Cab will make it easy for them to book a ride with a local operator."

Obaid Raza, Director at 247 Cars:

“Demand for taxi services in Bradford has grown considerably in recent months, so it's great to be able to give passengers more options to get from A to B. ”

Andrew Brem, General Manager at Uber UK:

“Accrington and Braford are apart of a growing number of towns and cities in England where riders can access both UberX and Local Cab in the same app. This will help maximise earnings opportunities for drivers while giving passengers more choice, meaning that everyone will benefit. We’re looking forward to extending Local Cab in more UK towns and cities soon.”
