We initially had the same feeling when our design agency showed us their cover proposal. None of the people you see working there is a taxi operator. They are all strangers to the profession and it is their interpretation of the change the taxi sector must make. The longer you look at the drawing, the clearer it becomes how the taxi industry will have to change in the coming months and years. To deal with these themes in one go, is impossible. But the first steps are being taken, that much is clear from various articles in this Taxi Times edition. Some are experimenting in the area of electro-mobility, others with the use of cashless payment systems. The entire taxi trade can profit from the outcome of these experiments and initiatives – as long as it remains connected. - the editors - DATES TAXIintell Update International Taxi & FHV Conference April 23–24, 2015, Amsterdam RAI TLPA Spring Conference & Expo April 29–May 2, 2015, San Diego (USA) International conference Modern Taxi II May 27–29, 2015, Novosibirsk, Russia 4.
