Trust2Ride is delivered by a number of expert safeguarding professionals...

Our trainers are passionate about safeguarding the public and highly experienced in delivering safeguarding training to taxi drivers. Often from training, enforcement and police backgrounds, our trainers deliver Trust2Ride training to raise awareness of safeguarding issues and ensure the public are protected and safe in our towns and cities.

A Universally Recognised Symbol of Trust

We want our Trust2Ride training to be a reassurance to your Council and to the public that your drivers have received formal driver safeguarding awareness training and know not only how to safeguard passengers but themselves as well.

Imagine getting into a taxi and you see the driver has a 'Trust2Ride' certified sign. Passengers will know the driver understands the importance of safeguarding society and how to deal with vulnerable passengers or situations that may arise.

What does the Trust2Ride accreditation mean?
