A new vibe is energising the black cab trade! Instead of gritted teeth, and brave faces, worried by the threat of Uber, there is now hope and genuine optimism from black cab drivers.
Time after time, I hear the same story from black cab drivers. Slowly but surely, customers are turning back to safe, experienced, utterly reliable black cabs.
Forget the app! All the spin doctors and lobbyists in the world can’t make up for a lousy product. Uber drivers are horribly exploited and on the breadline. Rapes and attacks on women are too worrying. Safety and knowing where you are going matter more!
Quality tells. The Knowledge is a struggle, but its value cannot be denied. You may have succeeded in other parts of the world, Travis Kalanick, but you will never defeat London black cabs!
