Simply tap on it (point) and let the passenger read it. To reply, all he needs to do is nod or shake his head. DEAR TAXI-FRIENDS, One of the main elements in the competition with ‘techapps’ is that taxis are providing an inferior service to these app-based services. Or, before you bombard us with critical emails saying we are wrong, that at least the perception of the taxi’s service is negative. Even when there’s nothing wrong with the service provided, taxis are often seen as lacking in certain quality areas. Apps are also often seen as trendy. A trendiness which is lacking from the taxi product, which has nothing to do with the taxi’s quality in itself. Every service provider needs to be critical of its own service and aware of changes in it. Not just the taxi industry. That’s why a pan-European e-learning programme like Taxistars, which provides a much-needed upgrade of the drivers’ service, is a great idea. That sits very comfortably with Mac Urata’s demand (in the main interview) for an improvement in the drivers’ working conditions. Because they, with many other contributing factors, also influence the level of quality the customer enjoys. - the editors - DATES CONTENT TRAINING 8–9 Taxistars from Athens: a ‘first’ for the taxi industry, developing a European e-learning programme INTERVIEW 10–12 ITF-secretary Mac Urata about the unions’ new activities in the taxi sector CONFERENCES 13–14 The Dutch Taxi Expo discussed many different themes 15–16 Intelligent Mobility 3.0: Are the lines between mobility providers blurring? 16–18 Russia’s taxi conference wants legal solutions in the trade GLOBAL TAXI NETWORK 20–21 Greek-European integration: What role Taxi.eu is playing in the changing taxi landscape in Athens SHOWS 22–23 Taxi-Highlights from the IAA car show DEMO 25 The European taxi industry demonstrates in Brussels WELCOME, WILLKOMMEN, BIENVENUE!
