London's Female Taxi Drivers 

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. On the mission to discover the truths of being a female taxi driver, we found out that there really aren’t any other jobs that let you come home with such a huge amount of stories to (hopefully) laugh about. We discovered the perks of the job are immeasurable, and that the rare instances of abuse are often short-lived. Plus, it’s not every day you make Joss Stone clean up the sick of her puppy in the back of your cab!
