Taxi Driver Respect Campaign

Taxi Driver Respect Campaign

National Transport Authority (NTA) launch campaign to encourage customers to respect their drivers.

The six-week national driver respect campaign is currently live across digital and social media platforms. Over the coming weeks the campaign will be seen on bus shelters, on-board public transport and on bus vehicles exteriors. The objective of this NTA campaign is to ask the public to produce a more positive working environment for taxi drivers. It has been in development for a number of months.

Lynk taxi driver Kevin took part in a media photo shoot to launch the new campaign. Kevin, a taxi driver with Lynk for over 5 years, says this campaign comes at the right time.

Anne Graham, CEO of the NTA said: “The new awareness campaign highlights the fact that taxi drivers are not simply people who provide a vital service to the public. They are also our neighbours, our friends, our family, and members of our communities, and as such deserve respect.

โ€œDrivers have a right to expect a working environment that is free of abuse and aggression.

โ€œWe hope that through the roll out of this awareness campaign customers will realise that taxi drivers are not anonymous but are real people with loved ones. They provide a high-quality service day in and day out in cities and towns throughout Ireland.

โ€œI would urge all taxi customers to be aware and respect their taxi driver as they undertake their journey in the day or at night.โ€
