Dear FOI,

As you may be aware there are thousands of operators, so finding contact details is not as simple as you suggest

It will take hundreds of hours to research this.

I have previously been provided this a few years back and need to get the updated list.

Please reconsider and kindly send us the information. It would be quite simple for you as the information is at your fingertips so to speak

Yours sincerely,

m ud-din

Dear Mr Ud-din

 

Thank you for your further e-mail. As previously advised, the names of
Private Hire Operators can be found on our licence checker. A ‘wildcard’
search is possible by leaving all of the fields blank and just pressing
the ‘search’ button:

 

[1]https://tfl.gov.uk/info-for/taxis-and-pr...

 

As previously advised, please carry out an internet search for the address
you require.

 

I understand that previously you were provided with a list, however some
of the operators are sole traders and their registered address is also
their home address. In accordance with TfL’s obligations under Data
Protection legislation these address details cannot be provided, as
required by section 40(2) of the FOI Act. Disclosure of this personal data
would be a breach of the legislation, specifically the first principle
which requires all processing of personal data to be fair and lawful. It
would not be fair to disclose this personal information when the
individuals have no expectation it would be disclosed and TfL has not
satisfied one of the conditions which would make the processing ‘fair’.

 

Yours sincerely
