Last year, Taxi Butler launched the first edition of their Global Industry Trends Report, a comprehensive report highlighting dynamic trends in the taxi industry across the globe – presenting data on the taxi industry before, during, and after the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, Taxi Butler will launch the second edition of the Global Industry Trends Report in July. The report will analyse taxi booking trends in four major regions: the UK & Ireland, North America, Australia & New Zealand, and Europe. Here is a glance at what is to come in the report:
- Q2 of 2022 noticed an increase of 30.65% of the trips made via Taxi Butler compared to Q2 in 2019, whereas May 2022 saw an increase of 13.10% compared to May 2019.
- B2B bookings for Q2 2022 witnessed a 49.08% increase.
- ANZ and the USA witnessed significant growth between February and March 2022.
- With international travel back in full swing, taxi bookings per location also look promising in 2022 compared to 2021 and 2020 in almost all venues. The bookings at airports, hotels, and casinos have witnessed the maximum rise, followed by supermarkets, hotels, hospitals and nightclubs in the previous years.
