If you are just like other smart taxi business owners worldwide who regularly read my newsletter and invest in my products and belong to my Taxi Profits Inner Circle, you know that I am not a big fan of what is going on in our industry.
I have even created a special section on my website that I’ve called “I love our industry.” In this section I show a lot of examples of incompetence and stupidity in the taxi industry.
However, there are folks that are doing it right. I do my best to introduce them to you, too. For example, you might remember my interview with Professor Alan Fels, chairman of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission that was a part of my Interviews With Taxi Experts series.
If you haven’t yet done so, you can listed to the entire interview and read its transcript by clicking here.
Today I want to show you yet another example of things done right. This time in… Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
I believe that real pros know the history and keep an eye on current events, which is why I regularly read taxi news from all over the world. I have to say: I am really impressed with what the guys in United Arab Emirates are doing.
Below are links to a few articles.
A few things to pay attention to among others:
1. Title of one of the articles: “Taxi fares to rise at Abu Dhabi airport as luxury fleet replaces silver cabs.” This is a perfect example of a strategy “Give more, charge more” that I teach in my
Taxi Business Transformation Program.
2. “The elderly and handicapped can obtain discount cards from the Ministry of Social Affairs. Card holders will receive reductions of 25 to 50 per cent on fares.” – While providing quality service, transportation authorities also make taxis accessible for seniors and disabled.
