Organization Of The Taxi Industry book
The taxi industry begins with the introduction of the first gas powered automotive metered taxis into New York on October 1, 1907. They were introduced without much notice from the press for no one could envision the revolutionary consequences the automotive taxi would have on urban transportation. In fact, there were more owner-driven taxis during the 1930s than in any other period of the New York taxi industry. In fact, the very word taxi was introduced into America on this occasion to describe the automotive vehicle for hire. A man named Harry Allen was the first to introduce the automotive taxi to New York. It appears likely that the large automotive manufacturers permitted this criminal ambience to develop within the industry through the manner in which they conducted business. Even the automotive manufacturers soon realized that they had overdone it; their investments were not turning into profit and rate wars did not offer a solution.
