    Amber Cars are pretty good, reliable and not badly priced, don't use the ones at the station as they're a rip off. 0113 2311366

    The anti amber facebook group only has 22 members! They've always been one of the more reliable and reasonable firms though, and they have hundreds of taxis. I've used them for 6 years now and never had a problem.

    By 'council' ones you must mean taxis with the licence displayed on the side right? The OP should definitely avoid the black and white ones which you can flag down anywhere or get at the station as they're extortionate!

    Everybody in Leeds I know uses Wheels and Roadrunners. I haven't really got a favourite taxi company because to be honest there all robbing beeps, but those two are by far the most reliable and efficient.

    If you are traveling for only 15-20 minutes then you should prefer to use the taxi's available over the bus stations, you should hire the other taxi if you want to go for a long travel, Before hiring the taxi just ask some person over there in station about the current rate.
