ROLE OF TAXICABS IN URBAN TRANSPORTATION

This report documents and integrates a number of taxicab related studies. It contains a general description of the taxicab industry, trip and rider characteristics, fare structure, operations, users, potentialities and issues. As one of the "para-transit" modes, taxicabs make an important contribution to urban transportation. It is recommended in this report that careful study should be given to making the entire spectrum of urban public transportation modes - including taxicabs - eligible for capital and operating assistance. A number of recommendations for specific courses of action are made.
