Owning a car in Edinburgh is not as desirable as it once was. In fact, some might argue it is more hassle than it’s worth. Widespread fines, fees and restrictions for car users in the city centre are leading many people to choose to leave their cars at home or even to get rid of them.
These car-owners, or previous car-owners, are opting for alternative methods of transport when commuting. As city-centre congestion worsens and finding a parking space becomes increasingly difficult, we ask: how can taxis help you out?
As well as the running costs of owning a car, if you plan to drive it in and out of the city on a regular basis, you are looking at paying parking fees and potential fines. These costs can quickly add up and eat into your earnings. Taxis rid you off these costs. What’s more, at Capital Cars we offer a 20% discount* on metered fares, helping you to save even more money!
Our taxi drivers are highly trained and know Edinburgh like the back of their hand, meaning they know the quickest route to your destination. When there is reported congestion within the city, not only are they informed about this, but they can often use their knowledge to find a quick, alternative route.
Like any busy city, pollution is a concern. But with fewer cars on the road you will be reducing your contribution to this environmental problem. And by encouraging your friends, family and colleagues to do the same, you will be doing even more.
Driving a car around the centre of Edinburgh is, in many cases, best avoided. As you can see, there are many benefits to taking a taxi instead, so contact Capital Cars and we will get you from A to B.
