Disruption or decline, what’s next for the black cab?
May 10, 2017 @ 8:15 am - 10:15 am
How can the industry adapt to respond to new transport technologies and mobility trends?
Traditional cabs vs. on-demand taxi services, how can both co-habit?
On-demand taxi services from companies such as Uber and Gett are providing new ways of travelling around our cities and towns. In many cities these services are offering greater numbers of vehicles and lower prices than traditional black cabs and minicabs, providing greater choice for users.
This seminar will discuss the future of the black cab in London and explore how the industry is adapting to respond to new transport technologies.
Our specially-selected expert panel will discuss the future of the black cab and the taxi and private hire industry more widely, including how the sector can adapt to address air quality, integrate with other transport modes through Mobility as a Service and evolve with the introduction of Autonomous Vehicles.
