amenity=taxi? Not sure if it fits what you're looking for.

Re: Minicab offices?

Sorry, only just saw this thread...

"amenity=taxi" won't fly, as Taxi is a "reserved term", applied to vehicles that are licenced to "ply for hire" - minicab licences specifically prohibit that ability in the UK, and by law have to be pre-booked, so a more appropriate tag might be applied as a booking office, for the base office where the minicabs operate from. Problem is that no such tag currently exists (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tags#Amenity), so it might be an idea, if there is sufficient demand, to propose the creation of a new tag, say "amenity=private_car_hire_office" or "amenity=minicab_office".

My five penn'worth, anyhow smile

Roger, take care that tags in OSM are frequently not used in their strict legal meanings (for instance highway=trunk, highway=primary, place=city, amenity=bank and others) and users who assume they are sometimes come unstuck. Whether the tag is best here is a different matter...
