Within 10 seconds of the last position of the driver's cab, the passenger can see exactly how close the driver is and receive an estimate of the price of the journey. Since 2015, the number of Red Top riders has fallen by a third, according to Kyle Summers, the new Red Top Cab chairman. Before the interruption brought about by the logbook applications, Red Top had a apparently endless array of interested riders, said Summers, who came to Red Top Cab this past Monday after exiting Ireland's iCabbi transport management suite.
Summers and Von Pelot, the regional taxi company's 26 year long executive vice president of merchandising and communications, said they hoped the new application would improve on the older, devoted Red Top application and help them better rival Uber and Lyft. An area where Red Top is still at a competitive disadvantage, according to managers, are the current rules that govern taxis but not calling businesses.
Whilst Uber and Lyft riders can register and sometimes ride within 24hrs, Red Top Cab riders sometimes have to delay three month to start riding while subjecting themselves to schooling, backgrounds check and other legal obstacles. Summers' approach to the regulation issue is something that Summers wants to do to convince the driver to work for the group.
Notice: An early release of the paper states that the number of Red Top riders has decreased by two-thirds since 2015. The Red Top Cab manager confused in an interviewer when she asked how many riders she had been losing since 2015. Since 2015, the firm has been losing one third and retaining two third of its driver base, not the other way around.
