INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
Can Ride-Hailing Companies and Taxis Coexist?

Air date: Thurs., Nov. 15, 8:00 pm

 

Some Islanders increasingly prefer services like Uber or Lyft instead of traditional taxis, citing lower price as the primary reason. Other consumers still prefer cabs, especially at airports, because of convenience and familiarity. The fact is that ride-hailing companies have staked a claim in an industry long dominated by taxis. This week’s INSIGHTS asks, can ride-hailing companies and taxis coexist? We’ll also discuss the government’s role in this issue.
