Taxi Diner / Shared Space Concept, Business Model

Taxi Diner
Taxi Diner

In statistics, the standard shift for a taxi driver is 12 hours, for every moment spent without a paying passenger, the driver loses money. “Taxi Diner” shares the spare space in the cab and makes more profits during the off-peak traffic. With a simple movement of opening the door, a driver can set up a vendor table in seconds. And pedestrians can pick up the goods easily along the sidewalk. The taxi drivers would profit from sharing time and space with the retail supply chain. It also offers an opportunity for a driver to start a street vendor business with the local markets, and the driver can be both alternative and competitive at work.
