Ehail pricing for yellows, any comments?
« on: May 05, 2022, 07:54:24 AM »
Sample a- taxi app trips are same as meter plus surcharge for deadheading
A determining factor for driver acceptance is
the ability to be compensated while in route ,
Their argument has always been that why should I accept an ehail if I can get a fare sooner by streethail, that will no longer be a reason for non acceptance of ehail
Outcome in general would be more yellows using ehail with a substantial number still doing streethails


Sample b - taxis use Uber rates, surge pricing becomes common therefore increasing income to taxi drivers , hailIng a cab from the street becomes almost impossible, most yellows are doing ehails

To keep the necessity of non electronic streethail we’ll need to use option a

If E-Hails tie up all the taxis now then all the other medallions in storage will take to the streets....Stay tuned!
