The minibus taxi industry serves approximately 68% of the South Africans using public transport. This book measures the impact of the Taxi Recapitalisation Strategy (TRS) on poverty levels and expenditure patterns of the taxi-mode commuters of the Greater Vaal, situated south of Gauteng. It focused mainly on the few townships where the taxis are the mostly used mode of transport. It has been shown that regulation of the taxi industry through the implementation of the TRS would lead to a rise in taxi fares and other consequences for the owners and users. Subsequently, this would result in increased levels of poverty and a change in expenditure patterns of most of the households.

It is without doubts that public transport plays animportant role in fulfilling the travel needs ofpeople in developing countries like Ghana. With anefficient public transport system, accelerateddevelopment is guaranteed. However, in the pastdecade, the public transport system is in Ghana isbecoming more and more unreliable, inefficient andinsufficient. The presence of different modes whichis basically made up of Taxi, Trotro and Metro MassTransit (MMT) has not been able to solve theseproblems. The study examines the factors thatinfluences public transport demand in general andmodal choice in particular. The study relied oncross sectional data gathered from a field surveyconducted in Kumasi,Ghana. The model was specifiedusing the semi-log form to deduce the elasticitieseasily. Three demand functions were estimated,eachfor the three public transport modes that werestudied. Income elasticity of the Trotro mode wasrelatively elastic indicating a greater change indemand when the passenger s income changes. The fareelasticity of Trotro was also relatively inelasticwhich suggests that a greater change in fare willhave a less impact on the use of the Trotro mode.

Hedonic Tariff Choice and Consequences of Flat-...
35,90 € *

Flat-rate pricing for services is becoming more and more popular. At the same time, the occurrence of a flat-rate bias increases as well: Many customers choose flat-rate pricing even if pay-per-use pricing would have been less expensive for them. Although the degree of flat-rate bias varies, until now, no study has analyzed service characteristics that might influence its extent. In five studies combining three different approaches, Fabian Uhrich shows that customers‘ consumption goals with regard to a service have substantial impacts on their flat-rate choices: Consuming services to attain hedonic gratification leads to a significantly higher flat-rate bias than using services to fulfill utilitarian needs. The more hedonic a service, the higher the taxi-meter, insurance, and overestimation effects. However, more utilitarian value has no significant impact on the flat-rate bias. Thus, by increasing hedonic perceptions of their services, service providers could gain more flat-rate contract customers.In a subsequent step, Uhrich investigates the consequences of a flat-rate bias on customer loyalty. Whereas prior research has found no negative impact of flat-rate bias on customer loyalty, Uhrich‘s study provides a more differentiated perspective. A survival analysis of two-year transactional data of 21,490 Internet service provider customers reveals that flat-rate bias has a negative effect on churn but not on tariff switching. The expected lifetime of a flat-rate bias customer contract decreases with every overspent Euro by about 1 percent. The relationship between flat-rate bias and the Customer Lifetime Value (CLV) is inversely U-shaped. Low degrees of flat-rate bias increase the CLV while high degrees can reverse this effect. The results of an experimental survey among mobile telephony customers explain these discrepancies to prior findings by showing that the competitive position of a service provider moderates the consequences of flat-rate bias. While low-cost service providers only experience increased tariff switching, premium providers are confronted with an increased churn risk.Managers of premium service providers are therefore advised to carefully evaluate reactions of their flat-rate bias customer base and proactively manage customers with strong flat-rate bias. Low-cost providers, however, have no need for action and can benefit from flat-rates without the danger of churn. They should leverage the positive impact of service ‚hedonization‘ on the flat-rate bias to increase profits.

The Shanghai Free Taxi

As any traveller knows, the best and most honest conversations take place during car rides. So when journalist Frank Langfitt wanted to learn more about the real China, he started driving a cab - and discovered a country amid seismic political and economic change. The Chinese economic boom, with its impact on the environment, global trade, and the tech industry, has been one of the most important stories of the twenty-first century. Yet few realise that the boom is largely over, and that the new reality in China is unequal growth, political anxiety and a newly empowered strongman president. In order to understand this new world, Frank Langfitt offered the citizens of Shanghai a simple deal: a conversation in exchange for a free taxi ride. Rides turned into follow-up interviews, shared meals and even a wedding invitation. In this adventurous book, we get to know an array of quirky yet representative characters like Beer Horse, the pushy dealer who sells Langfitt his used car; Rocky, a stylishly dressed migrant worker who loves John Denver music; and Xiao Chen, who moved his family to Hawaii to escape China's oppressive education system but was unable to get out of the country himself. Unfolding over the course of several years, The Shanghai Free Taxi is a sensitive and eye-opening book about a rapidly changing country.
