Ambitious taxi group Take Me has added another company to its growing portfolio with the addition of North Yorkshire operator Station Taxis.
The company operates around the Ryedale area and has a head office in Malton. Station taxis boss Lisa Ridsdale, who is staying with the business, said she was delighted that her business was now part of the Take Me group, and allowing it to access the power of the network.
She said: “Station Taxis is a family run business established in 1991, since then we have grown to be the largest taxi service in the Ryedale area.”
She continued: “We have been running a successful business in Malton and surrounding areas for years, but we know that being part of a network of businesses just like mine will ensure that we can use the latest systems, technology and marketing, giving us a new edge in 2022.”
“I am also looking forward to being part of a network of taxi owners, where I can seek advice as well as share my own best practises with other companies in different locations. Together, we are stronger, and ready to take on the challenges of operating a taxi fleet
in the modern age.”
The company has a workshop in Norton with a second office at Malton Station and an operation in the town of Pickering, Station Taxis operates a fleet of 15 cars, five MPVs and five 16-passenger minibuses.
Ridsdale added: “Having recently provided Ryedale’s first eco-friendly green hybrid taxi, we have since taken delivery of a further 3, demonstrating our commitment to help protect our local environment. We’re passionate about serving the local community and continually strive to improve the quality of our service.”
Take Me managing director David Hunter said: “The company has more acquisitions in the pipeline to be announced in the near future and 2022 is shaping up to be just as busy as last year, following the additions already last year to the group including of ADT Taxis, Steve’s Taxis, VGT Taxis, Westside Taxis,
Intercity Private Hire, Tower Cabs, TC Cars and Taxifirst.”
Hunter concluded: “It is exciting times at Take Me as we keep expanding and adding brilliant local businesses to our network fleet. Together we can bring our skills and infrastructure from being a national brand but build on the local expertise of these amazing well established taxi operators.”
