Our History

2017

December 22

1974

Humble Beginnings

Established in 1974, by the Norton brothers, VIP Taxis is among the oldest Dublin taxi companies and part of Dublin’s landscape for over 40 years. In its humble beginnings, VIP Taxis was operated using a radio dispatch system. One of the first cars the company had was a horse-and-cart taxi with radio. Bit by bit, as the company started to grow, drivers from VIP bought over the company and turned the business into a co-operative company consisting of small number of taxis.

‘80s and ‘90s

Improving the service quality

With the change of management, the ‘80s were marked by shifting the focus on finding quality drivers, and attracting high-profile clients and account work. This lead to VIP becoming the first choice of many corporate businesses, which still use VIP’s services until this day. Earning a reputation of a respectable and reliable corporate company, VIP Taxis continued to grow. As the number of clients continued to rise steadily, by the end of the ‘90s, the company had 120 taxis.

Early 2000s

Computerization

In the early 2000s, the company continued to keep a steady position of a trusted corporate taxi provider. Some of the key-players in the company used the chance to buy over the company, and change its structure turning it from a co-op to a privately owned company. Straight away, they made a large investment into a new computerized dispatching system that allows constant communication between dispatch teams and drivers, and GPS monitoring of all taxis.

Early 2000s

Fleet expansion

Along with the system upgrades, the new owners decided that expansion of the fleet is crucial, thus merged with several local taxi companies including ACE Taxis Dun Laoghaire, Fonacab in Blanchardstown and ABC Sallynoggin. By the end of 2006, the company’s fleet rose to a number of 250 taxis. Through the next couple of years, the company kept on growing, increasing their fleet to 350 taxis.

2008

Surviving the economic downfall

By 2008, with steady growth due to the boom we had a fleet of 350 taxis and then the Celtic tiger groaned its last roar. We had to make changes accordingly by restructuring our business model. Although we did not grow in numbers we held our own and by 2011 we still a fleet of 350 taxi which was a remarkable achievement considering other taxis companies were going out of business or declining dramatically in numbers.

2008

Rebranding

Surviving and thriving in such difficult times only strengthened the company and its position on the market. To affirm their hard-earner reputation and position, VIP Group decided to unite all companies, A1 taxis, ACE Taxis, ABC, Fonacab, Northwest, Blanchardstown Taxis, Fast cabs and Five Star taxis, and rebrand all of them under the VIP Taxis umbrella. The rebranding led to additional changes and improvements. Some of which are having all drivers fully uniformed and go through eco-drive, diversity and equality trainings. Additionally, the company obtained ISO 9001 quality standards.
