About Us

Alpha Taxis story begins in 1963 when Brian Scrine bought his first taxi, a Ford Zephyr. Since then, Alpha Taxis has gone from strength to strength gaining wide popularity and trust in the South West.
We celebrated our 50th anniversary quietly, during a worldwide period of recession and we continue to evolve and successfully thrive. During this quiet period we arranged for our drivers to complete their studies and training, gaining NVQ certificates in Road Passenger Vehicle Driving. All drivers are DBS checked by Wiltshire Council.
All cars and drivers are licensed under the local authority.

Brian Scrine

Sadly, Brian is no longer with us, but Alpha Taxis continues under the leadership of Jane Wilcox, who worked side-by-side with Brian for many years.

We have a vast amount of account holders, consisting of local businesses and organisations. In addition, we carry out various contract work for the local authority.

The safety of our customers and staff is paramount. We are ensuring that cars are cleaned and in line with the current government guidelines, it is now mandatory for face coverings to be worn in taxis, with the exception of anybody with a medical exemption.

Also note that there is a national shortage of taxis drivers due to Covid and unfortunately we have been affected by this and are currently actively recruiting.
