Full report

Taxis are an instantly recognizable form of transport, existing in almost every city in the world. Still the roles that are filled by taxis varies much from city to city. Regulation of the taxi industry has a long history. However this has not yet resulted in a universal solution. The taxi industry is complex and therefore it might be the case that there is no such solution at all. This report discusses the merits of different regulatory systems, provides a guide for evaluating different forms of regulation and assesses which system is most suited to the city in question.
