Environmental Focus


Environmental and Sustainability Update

Hamilton Taxis is committed to embracing initiatives that will make it an increasingly sustainable business.

This year we achieved two important milestones: the introduction of a low emission vehicle replacement policy and working towards a paperless society.

As part of New Zealand’s largest taxi fleet we accept our responsibility as a greenhouse gas emitter and the challenges of improving our environmental performance.

Environmental Class

Hamilton Taxis has the largest environmental fleet of hybrid vehicles in Hamilton. Hamilton Taxis provides an environmentally friendly service with our Eco Fleet of Toyota Camry Hybrid vehicles, diesel and LPG. Customers are able to request an ‘Environmentally Friendly’ vehicle at the time of booking.

Our aim is to be your taxi operator of choice by advancing changes across our fleet operations that will make us a cleaner and greener for you to use. Our objective is to establish an “Environmentally Friendly Fleet” of Hamilton Taxis.

Through a proactive best fleet replacement policy we are well advanced in having a core fleet of low emission standard vehicles.

Replacement or new vehicles must meet a low emission level as per the manufacturers vehicle spec and be no more than 8 years old.

Other vehicle types include LPG and diesel options. LPG carbon emissions are lower than petrol, and comparable with diesel. LPG is the cleaner fuel of choice and is increasingly competing with diesel and hybrids on both cost and environmental benefits.

Our organization is consistently scoping the next steps in the journey to be more sustainable to meet not only the demands of our valued clients, but also our own environmental objectives.

Hamilton Taxi’s – good for users, good for owners and drivers, good for Hamilton and good for New Zealand.

Hamilton Taxis service has always been provided in a most professional and efficient manner by the management staff, the operations room, telephone operators and the drivers.
