Simply Cabs


Like so many businesses, taxi and private hire companies have been suff ering from the crippling eff ects of COVID-19 over the past year. One Northamptonshire private hire fi rm has put its free time to good use by enrolling their drivers on online First Aid courses and Passenger Assistant Training Schemes (PATS) to enable the business to off er a new Assisted Travel service. Simply Cabs, based in Wellingborough, will be working closely with


the local authority, care homes, hospitals and charities to off er a door- to-door service to the elderly or anyone who may have mobility issues. Trained drivers will safely assist passengers from their front door


right to the waiting area of an appointment and even get them checked in. Once the appointment is over, they will collect passengers from the waiting area and take them home. If needed, they will also supply


Extra assistance for those in need


trained Passenger Assistants that can stay as travel companions throughout the day. To increase the scope of support they can


provide, Simply Cabs are planning further training for their drivers to become better equipped in topics including mental health awareness, autism, cancer support and dementia awareness. Driver Sarah Mae, who has undergone training,


said: “Simply Cabs specialised in local authority work and airport transfers, both of which were heavily aff ected by COVID-19. We already carried out a lot of care work so it was a natural progression to take on the extra training to off er a complete door to door service for the elderly. “As a driver there is no better feeling knowing


you are helping people in the local community. It’s so rewarding for us drivers. Simply Cabs also undertake work for the Department of Work & Pensions Access to Work scheme which enables people to travel to work if they have a disability or long term physical or mental health condition.”
