In response to the increased number of assaults and violent attacks on Melbourne Cab Drivers, 13CABS is proud to launch the direct response initiative of a safety vehicle, operating to provide emergency assistance to our vulnerable Drivers.
We propose that the successful introduction of this safety initiative will help provide Drivers with safer work environments.
Developed as an emergency situation response, the 13CABS Tiger Team provides staffed safety vehicles during peak periods to support Cab Drivers and the taxi travelling public.
13CABS Tiger Team safety vehicles are operated by taxi industry experts and accredited security guards trained to:
promote safety as a priority in cabs among Drivers and the public
resolve conflicts within legislation set guidelines
call and assist police or other emergency services
assist the taxi travelling public at ranks or roadsides to book cabs
