veezu Holdings has increased the capacity of its Bristol-based fleet by 20% with Call Cars becoming part of regional taxi operator, V Cars which is already operating in Bristol, Bath, Chippenham and Swindon.
The deal makes V Cars the largest taxi and vehicle hire operator in the Bristol area, delivering more than 3 million passenger journeys a year. Former shareholder of Call Cars, Steven Kelly, remains with the business to support the transfer of the fleet over to the V Cars brand and become a key member of the V Cars management team.
Nathan Bowles, CEO, said “The acquisition of Call Cars has significantly expanded the capacity of V Cars fleet and strengthens our local service offering in one of our key regional hubs. Call Cars drivers and passengers will now have the opportunity of experiencing veezu’s market-leading booking technology and service standards, which will improve the customer experience. Passengers will be able to enjoy the ease of booking and paying for services via the V Cars mobile app or phoning our call centres and connecting with our local staff to book and pay for their journeys with cash.
