Transport for London said it is working with the owners of The Shard to introduce a taxi rank outside the building as they expressed their disappointment that cab drivers went ahead with a protest.
Hundreds of cab drivers filled the streets near Europe's tallest building in protest at TfL.
Garrett Emmerson, TfL’s Chief Operating Officer for Surface Transport, said:
We are aware of the taxis trade’s desire to have a rank closer to The Shard and have recently reached an agreement with the owners of The Shard that will enable a single taxi to rank directly outside the building.
In addition a ‘taxi required’ light has been installed enabling The Shard’s concierge to signal taxi drivers on the nearby St Thomas Street rank to come forward and collect passengers.
In the longer term we are working to provide a full taxi rank, and are seeking to identify a suitable, safe location that is convenient for both taxi drivers and their passengers.
There is no need to stage a demonstration and doing so will only disrupt the travelling public, the very people that the taxi trade are supposed to serve.
