Harnessing technology to compete with Uber

PRODRIVER CONGRESS JULY 19TH 2016 BATH ROAD HEATHROW PD congress web page uber 200

Uber has based its success on its app, but it doesn’t have a monopoly of the technology. How can technology help you compete? How do apps, integrated booking systems, aggregators and comparison services help level the playing field?

Strategies to combat Uber

The rise of Uber how does it affect the private hire and chauffeur sector, and how should operators respond? Is consolidation the way ahead? Can bigger fleets offer a better service? Outside London, Veezu is leading the consolidation. In London, the big fleets are getting bigger too. Is there still a place for the smaller operator?

New rules, new mayor – is Transport for London giving us the regulation we deserve?

PD congress web page taxi protest 200

Sadiq Khan is the new mayor – what is that likely to mean for the taxi and private hire sector in London? Will the new Mayor seek to protect the Black Cabs, and limit the expansion of Uber? And will the established operators be caught in the crossfire? TfL has backed away from some of its more controversial proposals, but some potentially unworkable proposals remain – notably the Zero-Emissions Capability requirement. How realistic or workable is this?

Heathrow Airport

PRODRIVER CONGRESS JULY 19TH 2016 BATH ROAD HEATHROW PD congress web page heathrow 200

Heathrow airport is looking to expand. But there is a continued failure to recognise the role of the private hire sector in delivering high-value customers to the airport. What can be done to make a better environment for operators engaged in airport work? Will the new private hire car parking area help operators, or is it just an attempt to get Uber cars off the streets around the airport?
