Taxis at Europa Bus Centre
Save

Hi everyone,

I need to take a taxi from the Europa Bus Centre to Hampton Manor Drive, for an interview.

Could someone advise how long the journey would take (leaving around 2pm Friday lunchtime)?

Also, what is the best way to get the taxi - ring a company, or jump in to one outside the bus station?

Any idea of the cost?

Thanks!

Taxis readily available. Better to pick up in Glengall St - turn left as you exit the bus. Should take around 10-15mins.

Alternatively Metro bus 7 from opposite the Gt Victoria St exit to Hampton Park stop,

Personally I would head out the side entrance of the bus station on to Glengall Street and call a private taxi from the free phone little office across the street (you can't miss it). In my experience the black taxis are way more expensive than the local private taxi firms, and you're already probably talking about £7-8, or more depending on traffic.

If the traffic is likely to be heavy..then you will have to wait on it to get to you as it is not a manned office...yes there is a different tarrif in the black cabs...you say you are going for an interview..dont miss it bcauseof a pound or two...take a cab that is already available outside station..front or to the side..and goodluck on the day with interview

... says the black taxi driver. You won't miss your interview because you have to wait a few minutes for a taxi and honestly it will only be a few minutes!

... says the regular taxi passenger. Go with Bridget's advice.

Actually..you can miss an interview if you are a few minutes late...not a great first impression is it.

Black taxis are not way more expensive during the day, We are the only taxis that have a Government sealed metre and on our day time rate the fare would be the same as Fona or Value .
