CONTENT DEAR TAXI-FRIENDS, PORTRAIT As we predicted back in January 2015, the taxi industry had a very successful year in 2015. Uber and its illegal POP services have been nearly wiped out in Europe, and price adjustments were accepted by the customers in the countries where they were legally required due to changes to framework conditions. Last but not least, fuel costs are now nearly a third lower. The taxi industry has no influence on the third point, but it did put in enormous efforts to fight for success in the other areas. The phrase used in sports is ‘a solid team performance’. In the taxi industry, the team’s biggest asset is our ever-expanding common network (which we also show a few examples of in this edition). To carry on with the sports analogy: Regional superstars are powerless on their own in the face of global and digital challenges if the taxi industry does not work as a team. The Taxi Times team hopes you have more energy to manage the exciting tasks that lie ahead in 2016 and wishes you every success in your business. – the editors – 8–10 Taxi investment: The CEO of a Swedish taxi group has big expansion plans INTERNET 11 New and concise: At last one can get web addresses with the ending .taxi CONFERENCES 12–14 ‘Taxi Future’: Who organises future passenger transport.
