VELUBA is a new pedal powered/electrically assisted tricycle taxi for London. Officially classified by the UK Government and the EU as an E-Bike. It’s a hard shell covered taxi that can carry two adults and a child in complete safety and comfort on journeys around Central London. Seat belts, CCTV and lighting are all fitted for your safety too.
You simply order your VELUBA by using our unique VELUBA APP. Download the App, create an account and then tap or type on the map where you want picking up and then dropping off. A fare is instantly shown, accept it and the nearest VELUBA will come direct to you. Your pre-agreed fare is automatically paid on reaching your destination. No cash makes it safer for you and the driver. It’s that easy.
The fare you agree before you travel is what you pay. Nothing more. All the relevant details of your driver are also sent to you in advance too.
Also, as an e-trike, our taxis adhere to the rules of the highway code. So, VELUBA can use the roads, cycle lanes, bus lanes and pathways to speed up your journey. It can pick up and drop off wherever you want it to as normal restrictions don’t apply. Quite often right at your door.
