On Saturday 7 June and Sunday 8 June 2014 the Field Day festival is taking place in Victoria Park and special taxi and private hire arrangements have been put in place for the duration of the festival:
A marshalled taxi rank will operate at Royal Gate West, opposite The Royal Inn on the Park pub with access via Lauriston Road. This is the same location as was used last year and taxi drivers who hold the Hackney Extension as well as All London drivers can use this rank. However drivers licensed for the Hackney Extension area are not permitted to ply for hire anywhere else outside of their licence area or the Hackney Extension area.
The taxi rank will be marshalled between 21:00 and 01:00 on Saturday and 21:00 and 00:00 on Sunday.
The taxi rank at Mile End Station will also be available throughout the weekend.
A marshalled private hire pre-booked pick-up area will also be available. This area is only for use by pre-booked private hire vehicles (PHVs) and the marshals will be checking booking details with drivers and passengers to ensure that passengers only take PHVs they have pre-booked.
Private hire operators with bookings for passenger collection from Victoria Park should direct passengers and drivers to this dedicated pre-booked pick up area at Royal Gate West, opposite The Royal Inn on the Park pub with access via Lauriston Road. All private hire drivers must follow the directions of the marshals at the pick-up area.
The pre-booked private hire pick-up area will be marshalled between 21:00 and 01:00 on Saturday and 21:00 and 00:00 on Sunday.
TfL’s taxi and private hire enforcement officers will be conducting compliance operations in the area to help prevent touting and illegal cabs.
