London cabs still the best in the world for travellers

In the top place for the fourth year in a row, London is the best city in the world for taxis, revealed a recent traveller survey.
Nearly a third of some 5,000 travellers across 23 countries gave London cabs top ranking in five of seven categories including safety, friendliness, cleanliness, quality of driving and knowledge of the area.

However, London cabs also ranked the most expensive according to 20 percent of the survey respondents.

New York came in second, its iconic yellow cabs winning the best in availability (32 percent), while Hong Kong came in third, Singapore fourth and Tokyo fifth.

Bangkok’s Tuk Tuks got the vote for best value for money as well as the worst quality of driving.
All bar Italy of the 23 countries surveyed ranked safety as the most important concern when in a taxi. Italians, however, had ‘cleanliness’ ahead of safety.
