Not too long ago, taxi and fleet owners would view busy and dense city areas and see a steady supply of customers. But with the COVID-19 outbreak,the market saw a drastic change. Within a matter of days everything was shut down and everyone was made to follow “stay at home” orders and only leave when absolutely necessary. Companies that could let their employees work from home can survive in this market with minimal issues. But that obviously is not an option for taxi and ride-haling services, thus they were now facing a serious dilemma.
The Pandemic had a huge blow on the taxis and fleet owner with the unprecedented decline in ridership. According to the Canaccord Genuity pricing tracker, ride-share fares dropped by 6% month over month in March. New Yorkers took just 4.3 million ride-hailing trips in April at the height of the pandemic, a 79% drop from the 20.6 million trips recorded in January. Taxi owners saw their numbers fall even further, from 6.8 million trips in January to just around 273,420 in April, a 96% drop as reported by citymetric.
To overcome the losses and overcome the challenges, taxi companies and ride-hailing services changed the way they offered services. Cities came back with strict laws and restrictions for ride-hailing services due to the enforced social distancing guidelines. Customers began to stop using ride-hailing services due to fear of the spreading pandemic, losing confidence that they would remain safe using them. What possible solution could there be for taxi and fleet owners when all these factors are leading to a dead end?
