Their large cohort of drivers improve the local and national economies and are an essential transport solution for the district and beyond.

From cars and fuel sourced at nearby suppliers to parts and accessory businesses, not forgetting the local food outlets, the company is vital to the local economy.

Since being acquired in 2007 by the present owners many milestones have been reached:

- They were the first to successfully introduce a wheelchair accessible private hire vehicle in Glasgow

- They competed for and secured contracts with the NHS, Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service, Scotrail, Bae Systems, the BBC, Glasgow City Council and many others.

During the past 6 years the company has completely re-equipped its dispatch system, initiated enhanced checks for drivers through the 'Protection of Vulnerable Groups' (PVG scheme), undertaken a complete carbon audit to achieve reduction targets and been accredited to BSI 9001 (2008) for its quality management system and BSI 14001(2004) for its environmental review system.

Carrying over 12 million passengers per year, the company demonstrates its importance not only to the local economy but to the people of Glasgow who depend on it for a good quality transport system that is not only affordable but also quick, safe and efficient.

Ross Blyth, Network's Change Manager, said: "Network is fast replacing traditional transport providers in the areas we operate. With mobile technology, a vehicle is only minutes away and no need to wait at bus stops particularly when there is little or no price variation and its door to door so less inconvenience."

It is testament to their dedication and attention to detail that the majority of customers are repeat business.
