Elasticity of taxi tariffs and availabilities of services
We use a single data set from New York City to investigate the impact of the increase in taxi rates on the travel demands and accessibility of taxi services. Resilience of travel demands in relation to tariffs is expected to be -0.22; resilience of services available in relation to taxi tariffs is expected to be 0.28; and resilience of services available in relation to overall services offered is expected to be 1.0.
The results have important effects on the regulation of taxis. Firstly, tariff rises significantly raise revenue for industries, but to a smaller extent than the rise in ticket prices. This means for political decision-makers that the elasticity of ticket prices must be thoroughly assessed in order to achieve the required improvement in drivers' incomes. Secondly, the provision of services - an important issue of QoS, which is generally ignored in discussions on tariff policies - should play a key role in pricing given the significant effects of tariffs on this.
These findings alleviate a strong opposition from business to the granting of supplementary taxi authorisations.
