Taxi driver in Vancouver
A taxi driver told me that he gets 80% of his call from bookings and 20% from the road. There is no booking fee. He gets the normal taxi fare. His net earnings is about CAD 20 per hour. An office worker earns CAD 15 per hour.
He was surprised to learn that there is a taxi booking fee in Singapore, repsenting an estimated on top of the taxi fare. He says that the booking fee will discourage customers from using the booking service. It will earn up with more taxis plying the road.
