Kent taxi and private hire survey

The Energy Saving Trust are running a survey on behalf of Kent County Council and district councils in Kent which aims to gauge opinions about electric vehicles (EVs) from the taxi and private hire trade. The results will help us understand the barriers they are facing to making this switch. This will help to inform licensing policies and charging infrastructure decisions to support a fair transition to EVs.

As a thank you for completing the survey, hackney and private hire drivers and taxi operators will have the opportunity leave their details to be entered into a prize draw.
