Could you please help me identify where on your website I can find the information about what makes and model are PHV licensed with TfL in London?

We answered

TfL Ref: 0085-1718


Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 12 April 2017 asking for information about private hire licensed vehicles.


Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our Information Access Policy. I can confirm that we hold the information you require.


As previously relayed in our response to you referenced FOI-1138-1617, we will soon be publishing the requested information on our website.


I apologise that it has taken longer than expected to make this information available. The information is currently being collated and it is anticipated it will be published on our website towards the end of this summer.


In accordance with the FOI Act, we are not obliged to supply you with the information you have requested as it is subject to a statutory exemption to the right of access to information, under Section 22 of the Act. In this instance the exemption has been applied as the information you have requested is intended for future publication.


This exemption is subject to a public interest test, which requires us to assess whether the public interest in applying the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosure. In this instance, it is considered that the public interest favours the publication of this information in context, rather than in response to your request, to ensure the information is provided accurately and in an accessible manner.


If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.


Yours sincerely
