Comparing taxi markets in various cities around the world… 

Taxis are well-known to be used for an individual, mostly door-to-door, on-demand transport, offered to the public primarily at local level.

By the very nature of their services, taxis are an integral element in the sustainable urban multimodal mobility chain, which relies upon efficient public transport and a range of complementary travel solutions.

This new Statistics Brief, in the form a Global Benchmarking Study, highlights the differences between taxi markets in various cities around the world, with the objective for cities and operators to be able to benchmark their services.

The Study for 2019 aims to compare taxi performance metrics on different criteria to identify similarities and differences among cities. The study addresses several key parameters, providing an overview of the different regulatory regimes, economic efficiency, and performance of taxi services as well as fare regulation of transport network companies in respective cities.

At UITP, the taxi sector and the new mobility players work side-by-side within our international family.

Many of these new players are now part of the Taxi and Ride-Hailing Committee, bringing together recognised experts from both sectors to examine the challenges ahead.
