EcoCabs was first established in 2007 by our owner Matthew Kirkby. At the age of 21, Matthew decided to form a taxi company that not only offered a uniquely professional service, but also helped in Matthews long term interest of actively addressing the environmental issues we face today.
Built around Matthews ethos of providing one of the UK’s first professional and green transport service, EcoCabs came into existence through his company policy of ‘power assisted by bio diesel’ Aware of the rapidly increasing global concern of reducing our carbon emissions to lower green house gases and decrease our reliance on fossil fuels, Matthew formulated a plan of running a high specification fleet on locally sourced bio diesel. Hence, the EcoCabs of today is built on the best cars with the least emissions.
Key to EcoCabs success is, as noted, not only its green awareness but also its motto of professional service at all times. From the first day that Matthew entered the taxi industry, EcoCabs has been famed for its smartly uniformed drivers who are notoriously courteous and polite. Our EcoCabs drivers are all CRB checked, professional, and are extremely experienced and knowledgeable of the local area.
From our beginnings, we at EcoCabs have strived to ensure our company has been run efficiently and professionally. For this, Matthew’s hard work and achievements have been rewarded. EcoCabs can proudly say that we are well established in the Tyne Valley as a Taxi firm that is punctual, polite and one that provides a quality service, whilst helping to protect the environment around us.
