The Big Taxi Report

Today, One Big Switch launched our Big Taxi Report as part of our latest campaign to reduce the cost of taxis in Ireland.


The Big Taxi Report is the culmination of the largest ever consumer survey taken on the taxi industry with over 1700+ members sharing their experiences and opinions with us.

Some of the key findings of the report include:

  • 64% agreed with Deregulation citing improved availability as the main reason.
  • 1 in 2 consumers believe taxis supplement a poor public transport system
  • 45% get their taxis through radio operators
  • 3 out of 4 people primarily use a taxi for a night out
  • 1 in 3 consumers  consider price as the their biggest irritation

You can view the full report HERE

The Big Taxi Switch is a campaign using People Power to unlock Group-Discounted Taxi Fare offers and give Irish households a goo
d reason to consider using taxis.

How do people expect an improved taxi service with reduced prices. If a taxi is in bad condition report it and stop trying to put the licensed driver out of business who offers the good service.

OneBigSwitch's is about bringing consumers together ("people power") to demand better services & cheaper prices. We would absolutely encourage our members to report poor condition taxis, as well as demand better prices for consumers.

Lots of taxis in bad condition, smell of smoke disgusting and seem to be in about 2 out of 3 I get. Don't feel safe in taxis anymore as some of the drivers are fairly dodgy and some of them don't have a clue of their directions. I used to use taxis a lot now I try any means to avoid using them.

The best way is to come together as consumers & use that "people power" to insist on better services & better prices. Thanks for the feedback!
