In a place where tricycles are the kings of the road, the first taxi cabs in Roxas City was introduced. Called the Capiz Cabs, the five cabs started plying the streets of Roxas last month. What’s more, the cabs are fitted with receipt-issuing meters! This is the first time ever that taxi-cabs operate in the city. More units will be added soon.
Now I ask, what will happen to the tricycle operators and drivers who will, in not so distant future, be affected by this sudden resurgence of competition? Right now I hear varying feedbacks from tricycle drivers when I asked them about this, but I have to say that there are more unhappy drivers.
