TOA (Taxi Owners Association) was established in 1961 as a not-for-profit Friendly Society. To address the transport needs of Birmingham residents, at a time when mini-cabs were scarce and few people had a phone in their homes.
This arrangement is unique for a Birmingham taxi firm and allows drivers to have full control over their working lives, which has encouraged many TOA drivers to stay loyal to the company for decades.
We are now proud to be one of the largest transport providers for the disabled in the Midlands.

Birmingham TOA has links with similar organisations across Britain, notably in Glasgow and London, with which it shares good practice and business ideas.
As a Friendly Society TOA Taxis support local good causes such providing transport for the annual children's Christmas Panto and transport for local War Veterans get-togethers. TOA also provided transport for the high profile Birmingham World War II veterans trip to Arnhem which was a joint effort with the London Taxi Drivers
Association.
