47. 47. Tips for taxi driver Taxi drivers transport passengers from one location to another
for a fee. Taxi drivers transport people for a fee from one destination to another. Most
taxi drivers work in major cities or metropolitan areas. They must know their way
around the city and its surrounding area, although many cabs today are equipped with
navigational devices. Taxi drivers are paid in several ways, most often depending on a
taximeter that calculates the distance and the fare. Taxi drivers generate business by
responding to taxi company dispatches, recognizing the hand signals of someone
hailing the cab from the curb and answering a phone call or a computer message. How
Taxi driver Are Paido Fares are calculated many ways depending on the city. Some
cabs have taximeters that base fares on distance and time. They are turned on when
passengers tell the taxi driver their destination and enter the taxi and is turned off
when the passenger arrives at his destination. Fares might be calculated by
neighborhood zones. Another way fare might be calculated is a flat rate. Some taxi
drivers charge extra fares at night and for carrying luggage and additional passengers.
Taxi drivers might get tips depending on how well they served the passengers. 47
48. 48. How Taxi driver Get Customerso Taxi drivers stop to would-be passengers hand
signals, respond to radio dispatches, phone calls and computer messages. They also
respond to phone calls from the actual cab company. Passengers are also found at
such places as hotels, airports, bus and train stations. Day-to-Day Responsibilitieso
Taxi drivers perform vehicle inspections before they get on the road. Inspections
include making sure brakes and tail lights are working properly and fuel levels are
appropriate. Most drivers are employed by a transportation company, and they start
their shift by reporting to the taxi garage for vehicle pickup. They make sure the
inside and outside of the vehicle are clean and odor-free. Taxi drivers also fill out
daily activity logs, which must be accurately updated with every client. The vehicle
log must include passengers names (if they called the cab company), destination and
total fare. Travel Deviceso Taxi drivers are usually equipped with a map of the
surrounding area and a navigational device. Read more: Definition of a Taxi Driver |

the same manner that most people do--driving to his employers place of business in
his own vehicle. He 48
49. 49. will drive a company vehicle during his shift, but this vehicle remains at
thecompany parking lot or is used by other drivers between his shifts.Since a cab
company generally operates 24/7, a drivers shift may start at anyhour of the day.
Shifts may be longer or shorter than the standard 8 hours,depending on the scheduling
needs of the company.Taxi drivers are often expected to wear a company uniform
while working.Its also a good idea for drivers to devote sometime in the morning
tomaintaining a neat personal appearance.Earning MoneyWhile some taxi drivers are
employed by companies at an hourly wage (withthe company collecting all cab fares
at the end of the day), the industrystandard is for drivers to work as independent
contractors. Independent cabdrivers pay a lease fee to the company for each shift that
they work, then keepall cab fares and tips that they receive from passengers. In return,
thecompany will dispatch assignments to drivers based on calls received
fromcustomers requesting rides. This dispatching is done through a radio that
eachdriver has in his or her cab.The lease arrangement can be a blessing or a curse for
a driver, depending onhow much business there is on a given day. A busy day can
yield huge profits,whereas a slow day can be a day where a driver must pay the
company towork. For this reason, a cab driver spends his day hoping for many runs
andlong runs and is authorized to spend time between dispatched runs seekingflag
fares--passengers who physically signal to a passing taxi for a pickuprather than
calling in for a ride.Taking PassengersWhen a driver is actually taking a passenger, he
makes money from a basecharge, then by running a meter for the length of the ride.
This metermeasures the number of miles the car is running and charges a rate
perfraction of a mile. If the car is caught in traffic, some cabs have meters that 49
50. 50. will switch to a timed charge rather than a distance charge. Lease drivers
maychoose to turn off a meter early for a fare, since the money is being paid tothem.A
taxi driver must have a good understanding of local geography and haveexcellent
navigational skills. It is also helpful if he can spend some of the ridetime making
pleasant conversation with the passengers.Codes, Regulations and RecordsA cab
driver must follow a series of codes and regulations during his day, aswell as adhere
to certain record-keeping practices. Codes includecommunication codes (numbers)
that are spoken to dispatch agents to indicatecertain situations, like taking a run,
bathroom break, free for a run andcompleting a shift.Regulations must be followed
involving conduct with passengers, chargingpassengers and traffic and safety
considerations.At the end of the day, the driver must turn in a record of his day,
includinginformation about how many passengers he had, where he drove and
whatfees were charged. The cab company uses this information to make
decisionsabout how they continue to run their business, such as determining how
manycabs should be running in certain areas at certain times and whether or notmore
drivers should be contracted.Read more: How Does a Taxi Cab Driver Spend a
