About Us

We began in 1985 with the belief that cabs and minicabs could be done better. By combining the latest technologies with traditional customer service values we have now flourished into today’s most reliable private hire service.

Through various expansions, we now support more than 1 Million journeys per year operating in and around Stansted Airport, Bishops Stortford, Harlow, Hoddesdon, and Hertford.

With over 160 cars on the road and 5 booking requests every minute, you’re never far from a METRO Car. We directly connect passengers with local drivers with expert knowledge of the area.

Our ever-growing base of loyal customers rely on us for a variety of services, everything from airport transfers to local trips,  special days out for the family, weddings, corporate travel, functions, long distance and nights out.

Our fleet, like our services has grown with more diverse vehicles ranging from Minibuses to Estates, Saloons & Hybrid Electric Cars. We keep our fleet maintained to a higher standard than regulations state because nothing matters to us more than the safety and comfort of our passengers. We are endeavouring to move more and more of our Fleet to Hybrid and Electric Solutions to reduce our carbon emissions and where applicable reduce running costs incurred through Clean Air / Congestion Zone charges, savings that we can reflect in our competitive fare rates.
