WHO DRIVES A TAXI IN CANADA?

Although, there have been frequent media reports of immigrants with PhD and MD degrees driving a taxi in Canada, there have been few serious inquiries into this issue. Using 2006 Censusdata, this document provides information on immigrant and Canadian-born participation in the taxi driving occupation.

According to the 2006 Census, taxi driving has become an occupation highly concentrated with immigrants in Canada. There were over 50,000 taxi drivers in Canada; two out of four drivers
were immigrants. This ratio is double that of immigrants in the Canadian population of the same age range (almost 1 in 4), thus immigrants were significantly overrepresented in the taxi driving occupation.

Toronto Taxi Review Accessible Taxi Report

The introduction of accessible vehicles into a taxi fleet can be subject to a wide range of issues, many emotional and reflecting the sensitivities and costs of such provision. Accessible taxi vehicles, in the main, cost more to purchase and operate than a fleet average vehicle, making their provision appear onerous to the operator. Moreover, as the actual use of accessible vehicles in the current fleet may appear low, or very low, the need to provide such vehicles as well as their financial viability may be reasonably questioned. Against this background, the rights of an individual to travel, and the potential benefits of providing accessible taxis should also be considered. Low levels of taxi use by wheelchair users may also reflect the lack of availability of services, a phenomenon known as demand suppression; while many of the stated concerns over costs of provision may be based on an incomplete view of the market for and types of vehicle available.

TAXI AND LIMOUSINE SERVICES IN CANADA: INDUSTRY MARKET RESEARCH REPORT FROM IBISWorld

The industry’s structure is not expected to fundamentally change; however, technological innovations will facilitate connectivity between drivers and customers, potentially helping profit
margins. For these reasons, industry research firm IBISWorld has updated a report on the Taxi and Limousine Services industry in its growing industry report collection.
New York, NY (PRWEB)

October 24, 2014 — Increased consumer spending and impressive growth in corporate profit over the past five years have helped the Taxi and Limousine Services industry out of a rough patch. The industry is highly reliant on discretionary spending, and when the economy faltered during the recession, demand for nonessential segments of the industry, such as luxury limousine and town car services fell heavily, as many consumers traded down to relatively less-expensive taxi services. Spending by consumers and the corporate sector have been responsible for the industry’s rebound since the recession and revenue is expected to somewhat expand over the five years to 2014. The industry is expected to continue to grow, boosted by the rising prominence of transport network companies such as Uber that are taking advantage of omnipresent smartphone use, with revenue marginally increasing in 2014.
