USA: TAXIS OF THE FUTURE? THE "TAXI-PROJECT"

ETATS-UNIS : DES TAXIS POUR L'AVENIR ? "TAXI-PROJECT"

THE MAIN AIMS OF THE EXHIBITION ON TAXIS IN NEW YORK WERE TO THINK AGAIN ABOUT THE TAXI, ITS FUNCTION IN THE CITY, ITS FUTURE, AND NEW TECHNICAL STANDARDS, AND TO PRESENT TO THE PUBLIC NEW CONCEPTS SUCH AS THE COLLECTIVE TAXI, TAXI BY SUBSCRIPTION, DEMAND-RESPONSIVE COLLECTIVE TAXI, AND PERSONAL TAXI. STUDIES AND SURVEYS HAVE SHOWN THAT THERE IS AN INCREASED TREND IN THE USA NOT TO USE PUBLIC TRANSPORT VEHICLES WHICH DO NOT FULFIL COMFORT, CONVENIENCE AND FREEDOM OF CHOICE CRITERIA AS DOES THE PRIVATE CAR.
