TAXICAB UTILIZATION BY LOWER INCOME GROUPS

The study investigates the propensity of poor persons to use the taxicab. Data from previous studies are used to analyze the relative use of taxicabs by different income groups. It is shown that lower-income groups, particularly in small amd medium size urban areas, display a relatively high rate of taxi utilization. A survey of taxi drivers in Greensboro, N. C., and an analysis of the origins of taxi trips is used to support this conclusion.
