EXTENSION OF THE TASK OF TAXIS WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF PUBLIC PASSENGER TRANSPORT

AUFGABENERWEITERUNG DES TAXIS IM RAHMEN DES OEFFENTLICHEN PERSONENNAHVERKEHRS

A POSSIBILITY FOR EXTENDING THE AVAILABILITY OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT LIES IN THE INCLUSION OF TAXI SERVICES. WITH SUCH AN EXTENSION OF THE FUNCTION OF TAXI SERVICES ONE COULD ACCOMPLISH A STEP IN THE DIRECTION OF INDIVIDUAL PUBLIC TRANSPORT. EXPERIENCES GAINED ABROAD HAVE SHOWN THAT SYSTEM ORIENTATED UTILIZATION HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL. IN THIS RESPECT, THE PREREQUISITES ARE CONDITIONED BY THE TRANSPORT STRUCTURE (OFFER, DEMAND, UTILIZATION), THE ECONOMIC STRUCTURE (RUNNING EFFICIENCY, COSTS, INCOME, WORKING HOURS), AND THE READINESS TO COOPERATE. WAYS OF UTILIZING TAXIS ARE CONSIDERED TO BE FOR REGULAR SCHEDULED SERVICES, RELIEF TRANSPORT, SUPPLEMENTARY TRANSPORT AND COORDINATED TRANSPORT. IT IS APPARENT THAT THE COORDINATED TRANSPORT IS OF SPECIAL IMPORTANCE IN THE AREA OF HIGH-SPEED RAILWAY STOPS. AS AN EXAMPLE, THE HAMBURG TAXI SERVICE HAS BEEN USED TO CALCULATE THE ECONOMIC AND TECHNICAL EFFECTS OF A FULLER UTILIZATION OF TAXIS. INTRODUCTION OF REGULAR SCHEDULED SERVICES FOR TAXIS REQUIRES MODIFICATIONS TO THE LAWS RELATED TO PUBLIC TRANSPORT, WHICH HAS FRUSTRATED SUCH A COOPERATION SO FAR.
