Birmingham’s oldest Taxi firm, TOA Taxis, has kick-started a fresh new year with the appointment of a new Secretary and plans to make updates to their cab technology. New Secretary, Mohammed Imran Akram, recently took on the role after twelve years of service as a black cab driver and five years as a TOA driver. Mohammed’s new position involves taking on new drivers, organising contracts with local businesses, marketing and day to day management of the office itself.

Mohammed hopes to maintain and establish more relations with the local council, licensing agencies and local authorities which will help to further improve the service TOA Taxis provides, as well as the reliability and trustworthiness of the company, and to help improve the taxi trade in itself.

TOA also have plans to make more updates to their successful Cordic system for drivers which will allow drivers and passengers to contact each other with more ease.

TOA Secretary, Mohammed Imran Akram, said: “I’m delighted to have taken on this new role. I have built up a good knowledge of the taxi trade and of the company from my experience as a driver, and so it’s great to be able to help make positive changes and improvements to the service. It’s a little different to being behind the wheel, but it is fantastic and varied. I am enjoying the role so far and I’m excited for 2016 to unfold.”
