Punjabi Immigrant Mobility In the United States
60,54 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

How did so many Punjabi immigrants come to find themselves behind the wheels of so many New York City taxi cabs, and what do their stories have to teach us about how immigrants must navigate life in a new society? Diditi Mitra analyzes how race and class influence settlement patterns in the United States, based on her extensive interviews with 59 Punjabi taxi drivers, organizers of the New York Taxi Workers Alliance, laywers who represent drivers in taxi courts, owners of taxi fleets, and an official of the New York Taxi and Limousine Commission. What emerges is an unprecedented exploration into how society shapes the 'choices' made by immigrants as they adapt to America.

Yellow-Top Taxis
35,00 € *

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Yellow-Top taxis are a collective group of individually-owned taxis in Singapore. They have a yellow top and black body, hence their name. They make up only 505 taxis in total (about 10% of the whole fleet). In 1933 Wearnes introduced the first private Yellow-Top taxis. These cabs were the first of their kind in colonial Singapore and have continued since then. These taxis are required to be replaced every eight years, or they may choose to have their licence acquired by Yellow-Top Cab and become a hirer of the taxi company. These taxis are expected to eventually cease to exist, however, as all new taxi drivers are required to hire their taxis from any of the Taxi Operator License holders. When taxi drivers reach the age of 73, they are required to surrender their license. If they die before reaching 73, STTA (see below) will then sell the license to another driver, who may continue to drive until he/she turns 73.

Favorite Design vs. Good Design
32,90 € *

A shift in the public affairs from old public management to the new public management by 1980's and rise of "governance" reasoned the emergence of pluralism, horizontal public & private and NGOs collaborations, and open discussion platforms into the public tradition, which has also triggered a new paradox: The challenge of pluralism. Although pluralism is an essential ingredient of participation, it accommodates difficulties. In this book, the struggle between the searches for good design vs. popular phenomena is being questioned out of Istanbul and New York City's (NYC) taxi design competitions' methodologies and results. In addition to being a review of the taxi cultures in New York City and Istanbul, the book also develops a comparative scrutiny about the participatory methods of both cities regarding the processes that both municipalities have programmed and the commonalities & contrasts, and how they affected the design of the taxicabs as design objects. It is an interesting debate considering the current struggles that different local governments with different capacities and understandings around the world approach to the design process and participatory methods.

Taxicab Cultural Clash at the Minneapolis-St Pa...
50,40 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

When Steve Wareham heard that there had been another complaint about taxi service at the Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport (MSP), it came as no surprise. As Airport Director, Wareham had been working for years to improve customer service in this important ground transportation arena. Beginning in 2002, Airport Staff became aware that some passengers who were carrying alcohol often visible in the plastic bags from duty-free shops had been refused taxi service. The drivers, many of whom were Muslims from Somalia, explained that their faith did not permit them to consume or transport alcohol. Drivers who refused a fare for any reason were sent to the end of the line, and had to wait two to four hours for another fare. Losing fares represented a significant economic and practical hardship, for the drivers, this was an issue of religious accommodation, and they requested special accomodations that could allow them to refuse customers with alcohol without "losing a fare". How do faith issues relate in the customer service driven taxicab industry?
