well if it comes in at all, it will be allowed in all irish cities as well so all taxi drivers should protest if there is a chance of it coming in at all.

They voted in Limerick Council to allow it but Ross said No .Its simple if it is a vote winner in Rural Ireland then it will come in .The rep bodies never read the Goodbody report it clearly stated that there is a shortage of taxies at prime time especially on Friday and saturday nights .Dont be surprised to see the introduction of a Prime time licence which allows cars associated with a dispatcher being allowed pick up passengers with CC payments only that will record earnings for revenue purposes .Dont know if you were on Roys where I forcast work capture and ambassadors ie feeding the chosen few .When me taxi have 100% coverage all over the country they will encourage the Minister that this is a vote winner .I doubt Irish drivers would burn busses and bomb rail lines and sabotage the luas lines  but I could be wrong .Doctors and nurses are willing to let patients die for their pay rise .

do you think this TDS "great idea" will happen?

I don't for the following reasons.

it was looked at only a couple of years ago by Ross and it was decided it was not a good idea, what has changed since?

Uber is being banned in countries every other day. (banned in Brussels lately)

we already have rural hackneys for this problem of people living in rural areas, if the incentive is not there to operate as a rural hackney where you keep 100% of your profits, then why would you want to hand over a percentage of your income to Uber for doing the same job?

how are they going to police what areas people can work for uber, there are plenty of small towns which have rural hackneys, hackneys and taxis and buses so these guys aren't going to be happy about their income being halved if not putting them out of business.

the taxis and hackneys will not lie down and accept this without protests.

Ill tell the truth you can listen if you want .Rideshare is a certainty to be introduced in Ireland especially in rural Ireland .You say Taxi drivers wont stand for it .Most drivers work Dublin ,Cork,Galway as long as it dosent effect them they wont give a fuck (fact) Only in Ireland ,London ,Paris,New york has taxi driving ever been considered a career in most other places it is a stop gap for people between jobs or social misfits or minimum wage mediteranian jobs for pot bellied men .

True to the letter.

does anyone know how the recruitment drive from the NTA  for new entrants into the taxi game went last year?

Insurance cost is the biggest reason the NTA had to go looking for new taxi drivers, insurance is way too high for new entrants into this game.

Re drivers,
Have a look at RC's Cead Mile Failte page to get a feel for all the new lemmings entering the game.
The 2017 Stats Bulletin (link below) has 26,012 drivers at end of 2017 while their stats page (see below) has 26,255 at 31 Sept 2018.
A difference of 243.
I never counted the people in RC's page but I guess it's higher than 243.  It's more current than the NTA stats!

Re vehicles,
The 2017 NTA Statistical Bulletin (pub. Apr 2018) had 20,81 sPSV vehicle licences in the whole country.
Their stats page (31 Sept 2018) has 20,621 sPSV vehicle licences.
A difference of 1,202 vehicles in 9 months...

Spot on and some are suggesting the Rules for Radicals book has had several sources of input from many vested interests in the game. The book is real and is spoon-fed to those interested in claiming to be Oirish.

Ill gladly work the country if there is such a shortage of taxis ,but there will be none of this fiver fare business ,they'll pay whats on the meter or walk.country drivers put themselves in that stupid stupid position  position in the first place
That is the problem in the rural towns and villages the pax will only pay a Fiver to go anywhere in the village and the drivers accept it.
And yes DM, they will walk or wait rather than pay the metered fare, I had a job dropping in Carrigaline one night and I got a flag down in the town looking to go to Crosshaven fer a Tenner which is about a 16Euro fare, I refused her Tenner at 3am in the morning and she got out.
