In recent months Apple Central Taxis have invested over half a million
pounds into further developing the business. This comes in the form of
a highly sophisticated, industry leading telephone/dispatching system –
but most importantly the continued training and development of all
our staff and drivers.
Our new system tracks all of our vehicles, constantly calculating the quickest and most efficient pickup time. This drastically reduces our customers wait, in turn increasing our productivity.
Apple central has offices at both St David’s Station (Exeter) and Exeter International Airport, making us ideally
placed to pick-up and drop off passengers for these key routes into the South West.
With a fleet of over 200 vehicles including the Southwest’s largest consortium of *Eco taxis (39 hybrid vehicles) apple central’s cars are a familiar sight around Exeter. All of our vehicles are kept to the highest standards, so that
you only ever experience a journey in complete comfort, style and safety.
Whether you require a standard car, Estate car, Eco Taxi, MPV, Executive car, minibus or wheel chair accessible vehicle – Apple Central Taxis can satisfy all of your travel requirements.
* Our Eco-friendly/low carbon fleet was nationally recognised by the Devon Environmental Business Initiative awards – where we were runners up in 2011.
All of our drivers have undertaken a NVQ Level 2 in Road Passenger Vehicle Driving and completed a disability
awareness course to ensure we meet all of our customer’s needs.
Overseeing our drivers is a dedicated team of day and night Fleet Managers, who put all new and potential drivers through a rigorous interview and driving test before allowing them to work for Apple Central Taxis.
We handle in excess of 30,000 calls per week and hold all of the large corporate accounts within the city of Exeter. These include:
University of Exeter, Met Office, NHS, Exeter College, Michelmores, Ashfords, EDF, Exeter Family Friendly, Accenture, Exeter City Council, Howmet (Alcoa), Exeter Medical School, Majestic Coaches, Bakers Dolphin, Thomson fly, and Flybe. We are also proud affiliates to Exeter City Football Club and Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club.
Apple central taxis are the preferred taxi supplier for most of the hotels in and around the city of Exeter. These include:
Bovey Castle, Hampton by Hilton, Deer Park Hotel, Woodbury Park, Royal Clarence (Abode), Southgate (Mercure), Thistle Hotel, Jurys Inn, Premier Inn (all three), Holiday Inn & White Hart Hotel.
In total, we have in excess of 400 account customers and would expect to grow this in the next 12-24 months with the ongoing development of the Science Park and Exeter Business Park.
