Taxi for Hire

Taxis for rental

RFP Annex 5 Replies Available Today On-Demand Taxi/Rental RFP Annex 5 Replies Available Today Seattle Port began preparations for a new on-demand taxi/rent agreement more than a year ago, convening more than 30 interest groups - including taxi and driver ownership, package rentals, limos, shuttle services, TNCs and others - from the region's surface transport sector to supply inputs for the operation of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Inviting the general public to express their views throughout the whole exercise, the Commission listened to comments on the land transport sector, concern about equal opportunities for air travel and other driver/owner related questions from July 2015. Interest group feed-back and findings from the Peer Airports resulted in a RFP that improved capital and fairly compared to the last agreement in 2010.

Thus, for example, the high demand for fair boarding for air traffic prompted the port to increase rental possibilities. The Seattle port expanded passenger selection and services, enhanced our green credentials, and enabled the adoption of new technology. Among the objectives of the port's tendering procedure were to ensure a high level of services to the general public, minimise the impact on the environment, increase passenger travelers' freedom of choice, increase small business possibilities, ensure efficient administration and ensure accounting.

The port in Appendix 5 to the RFP provided information about the recently deployed TNCilot. In the addendum, applicants were asked whether they wished to review the financing proposed in the initial tender and provide detailed information on the charges levied on owners/drivers and the net revenue estimate on the basis of an outward air fares of USD 42,00.

On the basis of these responses, the port assessed whether the ongoing processes promote better job conditions for small businesses, better workplaces for families and better job prospects for small businesses, and whether the awarding of contracts in the context of the call for tenders is thus being promoted. Applicants have raised no objection to the clearance detail from Addendum 5 and the port is releasing these papers today.

By May 2015, a few month before the end of the current agreement, the Port suggested renewing the Puget Sound Dispatch agreement by one year to give taxi operators more opportunity to better appreciate the possible effects of TNCs on their businesses. Several taxi operators opposed this advice and demanded that the port comply with the initial timetable for competing offers.

The port submitted the on-demand proposition on 29 January 2016, while a specific TNC piloting programme was established. On 10 February, the port organised a well visited prospective applicant event. Suggestions were due on 1 March 2016. The port launched its groundbreaking one-year piloting programme in March 2016 to provide app-based "carpooling" opportunities for travellers while at the same time complying with the port's high green house gas reduction requirements.

TNCs are required by this unique programme to achieve a level of performance that is comparable to that of today's on-demand taxi operators through the use of high performance cars, car pools and reduced empty runs. The port published Supplement 5 to the Call for Tenders on 22 June - an additional stage that enabled respondents to change their financing concepts on the basis of early TNC deployment information and its impact on on-demand operators.

Of the five people questioned, three narrowed their budget down to the port. The result of the assessment of the RFPs, which takes into account the modified financing requests and the corresponding update of the assessment for this part of the RFPs, remained however unchanged. The Port of King County on 11 July reported that Eastside For Hire (ESFH), a small company with 21 minorities, driver-owner individual citizens located in southern King County, had won the tender bid.

The ESFH provides managerial, advisory, technological and disposition assistance to over 1,000 licenced rental and taxi rental companies, most of which are small businesses. The ESFH will commission Standard Parking (SP+), a firm with many years of parking expertise at other aerodromes, to carry out daily curb operation. The ESFH is negotiating with the ESFH and the port is expecting the mandatory franchise contract to be concluded in the near term.

Five year agreement (three years, with two one-year options), provides a USD 22.5 million port warranty over the five year term. On the basis of the forecast travel volumes over the five-year term of the agreement, sales for the five-year term are expected to be in excess of USD 36 million. Sea-Tac has been the US's fastest-growing US hub for the past two years, with almost 10% growth in air travel by July.

Supplier must fulfill request for no more than five minutes waiting period for customer at any given moment ($50 penalty for each breach of waiting period). The ESFH will use an agreement in place with Uber to cut down on empty journeys that are consistent with domestic and international travel, and an agreement with Alaska Airlines to allow travellers to earn MileagePlan mileage.

Detail reports in near real-time (proposed) to help port tracing mechanism. It accepts that redress is essential to supporting its objectives of creating good employment in the area, and recognises the right of employees to organise themselves when they do. An additional task of the port was to ask the interviewees to pass on all estimates of taxes and duties to the owners/drivers and to assess the driver's revenue per hour.

Remarkably, the area is a very profitable place to start, offering taxi and rental services in the area, and the drivers' revenues for air travel are higher than in the remainder of the area. Suggestions were given estimates of drivers costs between 41-43 per cent of sales per layer.

According to the winner's suggestion, the driver can significantly improve reimbursement by decreasing the number of empty trips and improving the possibilities for travel outside the city. The ESFH has undertaken to give precedence to Puget Sound Dispatch/Yellow cabin taxi services in the new agreement. What is the procedure for determining the port dues? Franchise charges to be paid under the agreement will be fixed in an open tender procedure.

Charges are not determined by the port, but companies make their financing suggestions on the basis of the state of the markets and what will sustain their commercial models. Here, in order to facilitate responsibility and prosecution, travel per travel was requested in the form of monetary compensation. The port's revenue goes to the general aviation funds, which provide assistance for aviation project management and facility management.

For travellers, there will be no impact since the same pick-up point will be used; however, in supplement to the conventional taximeter, flat-rate rental possibilities will now be offered. What makes you think there's only one taxi company? A contracted supplier enables the port to meet demands such as client services, minimal waiting time, trainings, backgrounds, vehicle cleanness and environment standard of the clean fleets.

The past, when all taxi businesses were permitted to operate at the airports, saw a number of things, including increased prices, cancellations of short-haul flights, bad passenger handling and fighting at taxi ranks at the airports. In the absence of the on-demand system, the port could not expect port managers to comply with minimal levels of client care and responsibility.
