I am back to the different type of cabs again and my desire for good cabs and detest for bad one.
I have an idea.
Why dont we have variable pricing for different kinds of cabs. For example, Cedric and Crown are old cabs, so the taxi companies can maybe start a bit lower than the $2.80 normal price, perhaps I would say $2.50. (Their rental is lower anyway)
Then we have the mainstream Sonata, Magentis and Wish which would charge the normal rate of $2.80 now.
And then we have the higher end Merc cabs / Chrysler / Skoda at $3.00 or $3.20.
This would be a fairer system where the people who just want a cab and not bothering about comfort (esp for short trips) to get a cheaper cabs while those who want some comfort to go for better one while those who want luxury to pay even more.
Now, the problem is that the mainstream cabs are now crown which means that people will automatically for the impression that these cabs are the norms, which cannot work because it becomes a premium which then people would want to avoid.
Maybe we can work something around this?
