the problem is that customers will assume that if they can charge that little why can't everyone else

Customers can assume what they like. If required, I can justify our fares and can even make a case for them being higher than they are.

well apparently already over 100 drivers have signed up in Peterborough and Bolt are apparently paying the drivers more than they are charging the customer.

Two of my drivers have been "advised" by senior members at their mosque to pack in with us and go and drive for Bolt in Stamford and Peterborough !

They have the backing of the local community so drivers not an issue but my drivers are insisting they have been assured this is only temporary pricing to build the trade and then it will go up !

Neither have opted to move just yet but they are thinking about it.

So the Peterborough launch is also including Stamford, Spalding, the Deepings and Wisbech Yaxley and Oundle

That's what Uber have been doing for years, which is why the likes of Uber, Bolt, etc will never make money out of the taxi/PH trade using that business model.

That's why they're going in via the Autocab route - they can crack open the market without requiring the same outlay :wink: :-o

Trojan horse taxis :roll:
