Yellow Taxi PricesGelbe Taxi Prices
The New York City taxi medallion prices continue to fall, now down about 25 per cent.
Prices for taxi medals are still falling under increasing competition from new taxi rivals, among them Uber. In New York City, custom taxi cabs whose owner must take a taxi for at least part of the year dropped to $805,000, 23 per cent less than the $1.05 million in 2013. Company medals that may be in fleet were trading at an annual rate of $950,000 on aggregate, 28 per cent less than their high.
A lot of towns demand the acquisition of a licence named Medaillon to run a taxi. The limited range of locket medals has led them to increase prices for decade, although prices have fallen in the last two years as auto servicing applications have boosted the efficient range of rental cars. New York City has also seen increasing competitive pressure from the sale of extra yellow taxi pedal cars and the "Green Taxi" programme for areas outside the busy parts of Manhattan.
Tweeps Phillips, the chairman of the Taxi Safety Committee, which representing taxi medal holders in New York, said the taxi and limousine commission "must begin to control these businesses and enforce the same rules that the yellow cabs have followed for years. Whilst prices have dropped in New York, in Chicago and Boston medaillons are hardly sell.
Traditionally, locket shoppers have relied on funding to pay the sale cost; in an echo of the real estate crises, a tightening of lending has resulted in a severe deceleration in locket selling, concealing the loss in value. Recent Chicago locket sells took place in November at an annual medal rate of $298,000.
This is 17 per cent below the top rate reached in this town, but most likely does not represent the full loss in value. Just 11 lockets have moved to Chicago since July 1, up from 225 in the last six month of 2013. A similar picture emerges in Boston, where only a few medals worth $500,000 have been sold in recent weeks, with prices peaking at $700,000.
"Nobody wants to buy now," said Lew Snapper, a New England brokers who says he hasn't been selling a locket in over a year.
