** This is my interpretation of the report - I'm probably wrong :) **
The number of taxis crossing the canals in the mornings has increased on previous years but those that have actual passengers in them has dropped.

Quote
2.2.3 Taxis (pg 8 )

Taxis made up 6% of all cars crossing the canal cordon in 2006. This increased to 7.55% in 2017 and this upward trend has continued in 2018. 2018 saw a significant rise in the number of taxis crossing the cordon in the AM peak period from the previous year, up by 7% or 301 vehicles.


4.3 Mode Trends (pg 23)

Over 2,000 people entered the City by taxi in 2018 - this represents an 18% decrease on 2017 levels. The observed decline of taxi use in 2018 is a continuation of the trend since 2012, when taxi use peaked at over 3,270 passengers crossing the canal in the AM peak period.
