The Clean Air Taxi (CAT) Programme has over £4.8m in funding remaining to help the Bradford licensed taxi trade to upgrade their vehicles to meet Clean Air Zone (CAZ) Standards or upgrade to a fully electric vehicle (EV).

Grants range from £3,200 up to £10,000, the CAT Programme helps cover the costs of upgrading to a CAZ compliant vehicle or towards the running costs of a fully electric vehicle (EV).

£4.1m of the remaining funds are set aside for upgrades to fully electric licensed vehicles.

With daily charges for non-compliant taxis now that the Clean Air Zone is in operation, find out more about how you can upgrade to a compliant or fully electric licensed vehicle.

The Clean Air Taxi Find programme is now split into two categories:

  • For the purchase of a non-fully electric replacement vehicle or retrofit solution to an existing vehicle to Clean Air Zone compliance standards.
  • For assistance with the running costs of a fully electric vehicle. The fully electric vehicle can either be owned or leased (minimum 2 years lease from the date the Terms and Conditions are signed) by the grant applicant.
