Taxi owners are in many ways the life blood of our nation, ensuring that workers and students get from their homes to their places of work quickly and affordably. The industry has been built over many years by hard working entrepreneurial business people like you.

This has been achieved in the face of many obstacles which have been overcome with ingenuity and considerable energy. However, your costs keep increasing, particularly fuel, oil and spares and your ability to increase fares is limited by your customers ability to pay them.

Thus you have to make sure you are running your business as effectively as possible to ensure that you take in as much money as possible but probably as importantly you don’t waste money on costs that add little or no value to your business.

This page is aimed at assisting to achieve those things, by giving you simple and practical tips on how to run your business more efficiently and effectively to make sure that our nation is able to keep moving.
