FRENCH TRANSIT AUTHORITIES PARTNER WITH TAXI COMPANIES
More than 60 cities and urban regions throughout France are currently partnering with local taxi companies to provide subsidized services to residents late at night or in sparsely populated areas without regular bus service. On the county level, almost half of all French jurisdictions have organized call-in demand services, three-quarters of which are contracted out to local or regional taxicab companies. For the most part, these are used by physically handicapped residents or are made available to people in rural communities that are not adequately served by the regular regional buses.
