Does London have taxi like mini buses

Does London have taxi like mini buses which can accommodate wheelchairs?

Having had wonderful time at the London Eye we are now in the process of planning the next trip. Stumbling block one is how we can get our wheelchair bound members from the railway station to the venue or attraction without paying the earth or having to have a taxi for every wheelchair. So the question is does anyone know how we can get a mini bus to hire with wheelchair access & driver to take us from Paddington Railway Station to the venue/ attraction then return to pick us back up when we finished. We are looking for a taxi type service. All suggestion gratefully accepted. Thank you and take care. Jackie

Ask on the London forum.

The individual destination forums, really ARE the best places to ask, for destination specific questions.

Most TALFers don't even know that these "beyond destination" forums exist....

London has a "dial-a-ride" service, you could try that, maybe??

Saw a TFL "Dial-a-Ride" minibus, today, at a supermarket...

Found the driver, says each one can take 3 wheelchairs. This includes 1 mobility scooter (depending on type).

Remembered your question, so asked on the "off chance"!

The buses have plenty of seats for carers, and others more mobile...
