  • Heathrow authorised vehicle area



    Dedicated area for drivers of private hire vehicles and licensed taxis

    Heathrow opened an Authorised Vehicle Area on a trial basis this year when local residents and businesses expressed their concerns about the number of private hire vehicles waiting in local residential areas. This is a dedicated area for private hire vehicles and licensed taxis in which to wait for passengers prior to picking up from a short stay car park and meeting at an agreed location within the terminal.

    Open seven days a week, facilities include vending machines, hot refreshments, a covered smoking area, toilets and litter bins throughout.
