Lähitaksi owns the first set of cabs nearest the arrival door of Terminal 2, while Vantaan Taksi owns the second set. A third series is dedicated to Taksi Helsinki cars, while a forth series was empty on Monday, the working day after the entry into force of the reform.
Essentially, the main differences in the new rules are that each of the different companies now offer different tariffs to clients, the rates of which are shown on each line of videoscreens. According to a Vantaan Taksi rider, clients do not seem to consider pricing information very often.
"Humans don't seem to bother with tags. Just go to the first in the line nearest to them," said the chauffeur. In fact, when a large crowd of crowds streamed out of the arrival doorways, most taxi -seeking travellers seemed to look not at the different signage and traffic lines, but at the length of each line.
Vantaan Taksi pilot Ahti Valeapää was a little more optimistic about the event. "By learning to price comparison, consumers will definitely find the trip that best fits them, and the mess will stop," said Mr. Valkeapää. What is more, they will be able to find the best price for their car. Taksi Helsinki rider took a walk at the taxis creens to see what the competitors demanded.
"He asked himself loudly and shook his skull as he went back to his own vehicle. Taksi Helsinki last weekend revealed that the airline has agreed to widely diversify pricing between companies, particularly in terms of start-up charges. According to which business you choose, the simple cab jump at the airport will cost between 8.50-12 Euro, while the kilometer fares are between 1.39-1.55 Euro.
The airport can also offer airport clients the option of paying airport rates in Helsinki city centre, which on Monday were between 39-43 euro. Empty space in the 4th line is anticipated to be occupied by other companies' cabs and independently owned businesses. Uber, another company that probably had a part to play in persuading the Finnish authorities to amend cab legislation, has not yet come back to Finland since getting its chauffeurs off the road last summers.
