Facts you didn't know: inside the taxi service

The question of how you imagine the work of a taxi always causes a lot of sharp statements, contradictions, dubious arguments and other things. Despite the fact that people mostly rely on personal experience in forming their own opinions, the general idea of the functioning of taxi services remains rather vague. This notion is spreading among the people and misleading many.

However, to be based on the specific experience of a particular person, without delving into the internal processes of the services and without considering arguments and facts, is fundamentally wrong. If you want to understand how a taxi works, you should consider the issue in more detail.

Functioning algorithm

Despite stereotypical opinions, it is important to realize that being a taxi driver is a rather dangerous, tedious job that requires the utmost professionalism from the person who performs it. Taxi services, in turn, intend to create all the necessary conditions for a potential driver so that his work is stable and safe. This includes, for example, location tracking, communication with operators to solve problems, stability in receiving orders, etc.

The driver must work in the service on his own behalf. The contract / agreement that is concluded between the driver side and the service side implies the following conditions:

  • for the driver — a continuous flow of information about new orders;
  • for the service — a commission from each order in the amount of a certain percentage rate.

To engage in passenger transportation within the framework of the service, the driver receives:

  • transportation license;
  • car rental document;
  • identification objects of the service (checkers, stickers, etc.);
  • additional equipment, if necessary.

Directly the process

The work of taxi drivers is built on the functioning of information and dispatch centers in the service. For convenience, operators divide cities into certain sectors. In the future, the driver, going to work, is registered in a particular sector, it all depends on where it is more convenient for him to work. The greatest load on taxi services is mainly in the morning and evening, the main peak hours.

Black and white list

This is a kind of summary, which can get not only drivers (for their poor quality work, unacceptable behavior, or vice versa — for professionalism, respectively), but also passengers. Frequent reasons for getting into such lists are negative or positive behavioral and other situations. A passenger, for example, can be blacklisted if he disrespects the work of a taxi driver and calls several cars.

Service concept

In the minds of many people, there are conflicting and dubious opinions about taxi services, suggesting that these structures are rather specific. However, it is important to understand that the service concept is built based on the demand of a particular society. Therefore, proposals arise precisely on the basis of the demand for specific services.

Drivers as they are

Another stereotypical opinion is unprofessionalism, irresponsibility and wayward behavior of drivers. Many people, again relying on their personal experience, argue that taxi drivers can behave in a very unacceptable way. However, they never specify how high-quality and proven the service in which they ordered a taxi was.

It's simple — reliable representatives of the taxi industry arrange checks on potential drivers to determine whether he is worthy of a job in this service. In organizations where recruitment is taken seriously, you will never meet a driver with disgusting behavior and an unprofessional level of work.
