With the changing needs and advancement in technology, people want to avail facilities that are not only less time-consuming but affordable so that they do not have to think much while using them. There are machines to handle majority of the technical and heavy work while, the internet is available to access anything at anytime and anywhere in the world. Likewise, when it comes to transportation, technology has introduced the concept of on-demand taxi services that allow a person to hire a taxi through a mobile application, making sure that they can be picked up from their homes and dropped at the destination.
A few months back, the global industry association for road transport, the International Road and Transport Union (IRU) organized an event to throw light over the techniques and benefits of improving mobility of goods and people. The European Parliament member and the Chairman of the Committee for Transport and Tourism, Michael Kramer was also in the event along with the Dutch EU presidency.
The event was all about different business models that are playing an important role in the taxi industry, offering user-friendly solutions in the collaborative economy. By efficiently responding to people’s needs and providing a stimulus to the market, taxi companies have taken an initiative to allow travelers to roam with better and affordable services. With the mobile application, travelers can easily reserve a taxi for their trip, thus ensuring that they can always remain on time.
Since mobility has become one of the crucial aspects, especially when it comes to reaching the office or attending a meeting, more and more people prefer to use on-demand taxi services in order to be sure that they can easily reach their destinations.
The virtual taxi services are particularly suitable for people who live in remote areas where, there is no public transport or taxi service available. Credit goes to the technology and the mind behind this amazing innovation! The well-organized car fleet and connection with the public transportation services also helps in reducing congestion and are environmentally-friendly as compared to traditional services.
The taxi company has to ensure mobility by complying with all social and fiscal obligations because it is important to take care of what travelers need and drivers have to bring them to their destination without any damage. Nowadays, taxi industry is regulating on national or local level whereas, taxi companies strive to avail cross-border dimensions and the EU’s internal market opportunities. This way, they would be in a better position to offer satisfactory transportation services.
Mobility tends to be an influencing factor for people to select a taxi company. If the company does not possess enough fleet of cars to facilitate many people at a time, they might end up with losing their position in the taxi industry because people always want instant solution for their mobility and would shift to a company that has the ability to meet their requirements right away. So, it can be said that mobility influences taxi companies to make innovations and expand their services.
