MARKETING OPP: New York Cab Wars

LCT Magazine

MAJOR CATFIGHT, ERR, CABFIGHT:

NY cabbies are furious about accusations from the New York Taxi and Limousine Commission that they GOUGED CUSTOMERS through meter manipulations; whatever the final conclusions, i.e. the truth which is likely somewhere in between, we can safely say you don't have such pricing drama with the more upfront, reservation-oriented chauffeured transportation services.

New York luxury limousine operators should take full advantage of recent developments -- the meter fights, crabby cabbies, cell phone rudeness -- to promote and market the saner, more practical benefits of chauffeured transportation. This could be a golden moment to educate the riding public about luxury-limo and gain some market share. -- M.R.
