Even though this is technically a rideshare podcast and most of my listeners and readers are Uber and Lyft drivers I still think there is a lot that can be learned from the taxi industry.
I don’t know if there’s anyone that actually prefers a taxi over Uber/Lyft but there are definitely plenty of taxis still around. In fact, we all have our stereotypes about what it’s like to ride in a taxi but I wanted to find out what the taxi companies have to say about them.
In today’s podcast, I interview the owner of a successful taxi company in Asheville, North Carolina and get his thoughts on the rideshare takeover of the taxi industry. This was a really insightful interview for me because it gave me a look into what it’s like to run a taxi business. It’s crazy to hear about the obstacles taxis face and the hoops they have to jump through that we as rideshare drivers take for granted. I learned a ton on this podcast and I think you will too so enjoy!
