Pros and cons of public transport
Comfortable taxi services between cities are relatively new service. Suddenly, a few years such services in general have meaning and application, since the frequency of flights is higher, so the need for transport is also larger. With such journeys are mainly used by businessmen who have to attend to important matters and want to travel in comfort.
An important business meeting requires punctuality, so public transport is out for several reasons. Firstly, the timetable, which makes it impossible to get on the given place at a given time. Secondly, we have no way of getting in a specific place, we limit stops, which still somehow have to get to the meeting place. Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, this type of transport does not guarantee us that we reach the place of the allotted time.
Taxi drivers wages
It would seem that most taxis are cashing in on routes around the city, which is the classic scenario: we are shopping and we want to go home, and unfortunately public transport will not come for another hour. What we do? We call for a taxi and in a few minutes we're going home. What is interesting with such courses taxi drivers do not earn much, the majority goes to fixed costs and fuel.
Intercity routes or airport transportation is the most profitable routes for the taxi driver and transport companies. The more such routes during the month, the better for the driver. Shorter routes is more filling and the way to the taxi does not stay for all day long.
Taxicab- definiction form Wikipedia
A taxicab, also known as a taxi or a cab, is a type of vehicle for hire with a driver, used by a single passenger or small group of passengers, often for a non-shared ride. A taxicab conveys passengers between locations of their choice. This differs from other modes of public transport where the pick-up and drop-off locations are determined by the service provider, not by the passenger, although demand responsive transport and share taxis provide a hybrid bus/taxi mode.
