Why Not Share Taxis?

With a few notable exceptions, I’m not a lover of taxis.  If I get a taxi from Cambridge to where I live I’ve been charged nearly £50.  But how many times has someone else been doing a similar journey and a share would have been much better?

So I was pleased to see that at Milton Keynes a company call TaxiShareUK is starting such a service. 

I hope it works!

  1. Shared taxi schemes introduce a series of barriers that discourage use amongst passengers.

    Unless there are major benefits apart from reduced cost (e.g. shorter wait times), such schemes don’t provide enough incentive to participate.
