A taxi, also known as a cab, is a type of vehicle for hire with driver used by a single passenger or small group of passengers, often for a shared or non-shared ride. A taxi or a cab conveys passengers between locations of their choice. This differs from public transport, as here the pick-up and drop-off locations are decided by the customer, and not by the service provider. There are various distinct forms of taxi, which includes limousines, hackney carriages, and private hire vehicles including passenger car, motorcycle, scooters, minivan, van, buses & coaches, auto rikshaw, bicycles, and tricycles. Taxi services are typically provided by automobiles, but in some countries various human-powered vehicles such as rickshaw or pedicab, animal-powered vehicles such as the Hansom cab and water taxies or air taxies are also used. Customers can book a ride via text message request, phone calls, or by going directly service provider’s physical location.
The factors such as rise in demand for ride-hailing and ride-sharing services, increase in requirement from online taxi booking channels, and surge in cost of vehicle ownership are anticipated to drive the market growth. However, improvement of public transportation and varying government regulations on taxi services in different countries across the world hinder the market growth. Further, development of robo-taxies and emergence of eco-friendly electric cab services are some of the factors that are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market growth during the forecast period.
