About Us

About Us








In 2012 i set out to start a taxi company in Cheltenham that focused solely on delivering great user experiences, offered something different, and didn’t cost the earth.

I couldn’t rely on the legacy of past taxi firms as the basis for my new company, instead I challenged the conventional formula and created a new approach with customer satisfaction at the heart of the business.

A little about me..     

Born in Glasgow raised in Cheltenham, my name is Jim Hughes and I am proud to be the founder of the company Clearway Cars, a newly established Cheltenham Taxi service.

My background in management is worlds apart from that of a taxi driver, but the years of experience and knowledge gained has helped me develop a determination to deliver quality in everything I do.

After 25 years in manufacturing industry I needed a change in direction, a fresh start, something new outside of my comfort zone.

With my brother and various family members already in the taxi business, it’s almost inevitable that I follow suit, so in December 2009 I applied to Cheltenham Borough Council for a Hackney Carriage licence.

January 2010 now licensed I join my brother Rob at Rob’s taxis, a company with a very well earned reputation for performance and quality of service with contracts that include Gloucestershire County Council.

My ever increasing desire to start my own company finally shines through and plans to launch Clearwaycars begin.

Although in its infancy Clearway Cars has already started emerging as a company that lives up to expectations.
