You can use Taxi Check Live!™ to check any taxi you use is licensed with Harlow Council.
There are 3 taxi ranks in Harlow:

All hackney carriage vehicles (black cabs) are wheelchair accessible.
You can check our wheelchair accessible vehicles list (pdf) for more details.
Drivers of hackney carriage vehicles have a legal duty to carry wheelchair passengers and passengers with assistance dogs.
The only circumstance when a driver can refuse to take a wheelchair passenger or a passenger with an assistance dog is if they have an exemption notice.
The only grounds for exemption are medical, or that a physical condition makes it impossible or unreasonably difficult for a driver to comply with their duty.
