Albies other services

Albies Taxis transport department provide taxis and minibuses for school transport on a daily basis being approved council contractors - taking individual children, and groups of children with special needs - to and from their schools. All drivers, and the Company management, have been "Police Checked", (through the Criminal Records Bureau), therefore parents and guardians can be assured that children are travelling in safety and comfort with professional drivers. Albies Taxis are one of the main contractors used by Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils and local authority to taxi unaccompanied children as well as contracts that involve both escort and non-escort, between home and the many schools across the county.

We are also hired on a regular basis by the various Social Services Offices around the UK, to transport vulnerable adults and children safely to their destinations. Our taxi and minibus drivers are patient and understanding towards the elderly and disabled. Our minibuses are fully wheel chair accessible with tail lifts of various sizes for passengers who are wheelchair bound or just find it difficult to enter by steps can enter the minibus via the wheelchair lift. These minibuses can take a single wheelchair to eight wheelchairs in single vehicle. The drivers are fully trained in regard to the safe transportation of wheelchair bound passengers. This includes the use of tail lifts and four point straps.

Like the taxi department we have invested in an award winning Coach Manager Private Hire and Contract Booking System which has been specially designed for coach, minibus and chauffeur companies. The system produces client confirmation letters, driver work tickets and invoices for either individual or multiple bookings. The built in sales ledger can produce client statements, an aged debt analysis and a wide range of financial reports. The graphical scheduling system makes it easy to achieve the most efficient possible utilisation of both vehicles and drivers. The software we use is comprehensive and includes systems for managing coach based private hires, regular contract work, community transport operation, day excursions, express services and vehicle maintenance.

In the near future we are looking at integrating this system with real time GPS tracking by which means the booking or contract is automatically assigned to the relevant vehicles so we will be aware of any delays before they happen we are hoping to be able to allow via a secure link this information to parents and schools to be able to trace their transport.
