Hammers United.-Taxi rank at the London Stadium.
Hammers United are making good progress with our work to have a taxi rank in place, right next to the London Stadium.If we can achieve this it will benefit disabled supporters, those of us who aren’t getting any younger or indeed any supporter keen to avoid the walk from public transport or the nearest parking .It would, of course, also be great for those who want to make the most of their time in pubs or cafes a little way away from the stadium before a game. Hopefully this in turn might also benefit those pubs and businesses left behind by the stadium move.

Paul Kershaw visited the stadium to identify a possible site.We went to have a look, and subsequently (with the help of Jon Trevor) made contact with the London Taxi Drivers Association.The LTDA are in support of the proposal, as are Transport For London.

Newham and the London Legacy Development Cooperation have been informed of the plans and the stadium operators are now looking into how we get cabs through the soft vehicle checkpoints.We will keep you informed of developments. We are confident this will get the go ahead and we believe this is another small step taken by Hammers United towards improving the supporter experience.

Thanks to Paul and Jon,and to Paul Brennan of the LTDA, whose assistance has been pivitol.

Long Live West Ham.

Re: Hammers United.-Taxi rank at the London Stadium.
guessing a black cab would have to sit in same traffic as the shuttle buses so easily £10+ each way

I presumed no traffic. Cabs only lane to and from the stadium.

There must be a cabbie on here who would be able to estimate.

Fordy shouldn't be too difficult to spot.

He'll be the bloke having a row in a lumberjack shirt.

oioi, it will be on the clock, so it will vary depending on traffic

Re: Hammers United.-Taxi rank at the London Stadium.
How much will it cost to get a black cab from the rank outside Stratford underground station to the stadium? Let's say, for arguments sake, 3/4 mile.

Nice one Chav, the shuttle bus they had used to take ages to get round the stadium and make all the pick ups, my brother-in-law sacked it off ages ago

You’re right. I didn’t realize that was from the first game. I don’t know why I thought that had to be campaigned for. Wasn’t there some kind of inadequacy that was highlighted?

Anyway, I will play fair and remove a pin or two from my GSB voodoo doll.

Good. This is the sort of shit I want from a supporter group before 2023.

Re: Hammers United.-Taxi rank at the London Stadium.
That’s not correct Lily, there’s been a shuttle bus for disabled from Stratford Jubilee line platform 15 since the first ever game there, and that’s just the bit on my route.

Is Fordstar organising this? Noble effort if he is.

Fair play and good work

Re: Hammers United.-Taxi rank at the London Stadium.
Good work, chav, but of course this is another thing that should have been in place before August 2016.

The world class transport links are true if you’re talking about the Westfield shopping centre. Elderly and handicapped fans were not even an afterthought. Not much thought went into anything once the tenancy for the OS was signed and the Boleyn Ground was sold. Mission accomplished.
