Founded on principles to bring change within the industry we succeed through education and awareness campaigns. We work closely with the trade and their suppliers to make the taxi, private hire, minicab and chauffeur industry safer for consumers and businesses.

We are aware that there are established publications for the passenger transport industry, but LTU is unique in our approach. We provide informative articles, features, research and investigations for both the trade and consumer, making Licensed Transport Uncovered the UK’s leading publication.

The team behind LTU have been working behind the scenes for six years, building a large network throughout the UK. Since our inception in 2014, the LTU team has worked tirelessly with third parties closely linked to the industry to protect the trade and consumers.

Our website and team continue to build on our reputation and we are becoming the place to go for advice, education or help with investigations. Our campaigning and cases are taken seriously by government authorities and agencies, with suppliers to the trade taking notice of our goals.

Licensed Transport Uncovered is a UK-based website, with the vast majority of our readers being from the trade, or UK based consumers. Our website has hits from around the world, including Germany, France, America, Australia and China. We expect our visitors to grow significantly from January 2017, as we expand to a global audience.

Due to our investigative approach we work closely with the national press and media, as well as the trade press. This enables our brand and website to obtain wide media coverage and raises our profile attracting even more visitors to our site. Licensed Transport Uncovered also benefits from being interactive with our readers and the trade through our Q&A forum and proactive usage of social media.


Even our advertising packages are unique

Due to the number of investigations and campaigns undertakes we rely heavily on donations and advertising revenues so we are able to reinvest into making the trade safer. We offer the opportunity for businesses to place adverts in a number of key positions across out site.

Banner adverts can be placed in our main header, next to our logo and on our main home page we have a number of locations, including sidebars which remain in view when visitors scroll through articles or pages. Finally we can also position adverts at the bottom of each articles, prior to the comments section.
