I'd be the same Mark, no interest in joining a load of Taxi Drivers like a scene out of Oliver waiting on hand-outs

I've driven into the Airport and the kesh would have less than ten cars(empty)and the Virtual rank still has 50 plus drivers on it.Maybe it's because Mytaxi isn't as popular with tourists.

A spokesperson for the DAA (formerly the Dublin Airport Authority) said that while the airport tries to ensure a solid flow of drivers and the option of card payments, it is difficult to enforce as drivers are self employed.

Quote
"... a comprehensive stakeholder review of the taxi service at Dublin Airport will be taking place soon."

Obviously it'd be a lot easier if they all worked for one firm that could enforce rules of operation. mytaxi seems to have a good relationship with DAA these days with it's drivers paying a large fortune in parking fees and arrivals terminals plastered with advertisements for the firm.

Any feedback from the Keshies on this ?

The DAA could open a mytaxi hospitality account!

The Keshies are the only ones who seem to be united in the fleet.If anyone is going to block up the airport it will be them.I'd say the DAA would love to bring in Mytaxi but worry about upsetting the lads.

Indeed it could, VD. Give DAA €1.50 per job and charge drivers €2 extra commission... and guarantee service with credit card facilities. Drivers would behave a lot better than the current villains licensed by DAA because they would know they would be sacked if they didn't do as they're told.

I do a fair few airport virtual rank jobs,and quite often ask if the customer used to use the rank.The number of people who say they will never go back is huge.

Dublin Airport said a shortage of taxis overall in the city may be responsible for longer waiting times at the airport.
So it's nothing to do with the fact that the airport is a closed shop for taxis.  DAA limit the numbers of taxis, not taxi drivers themselves.

The vast, vast majority of taxis dropping off at the airport drive away empty because that's the law/by-law set down by the airport themselves.
