At Tradex, we set out to discover the reason why it is that whenever you jump into a taxi, the driver tends to be a male. A report by TFL shows that only 2.2% of all taxi drivers in London are female, the rest being the males you often hop into the cab with.
So why is this the case? We invited some of London’s female cabbies for a coffee and a chat to figure out exactly why.

We discovered the perks of the job are immeasurable, and that the rare instances of abuse are often short-lived.
