You can accomplish more with a kind word and a gun then a kind word alone.

Well done Rowboat. You might start thinking (in your spare time) about how to use a phone app to schedule and collect fees. This has been tried elsewhere and the taxi companies fought it, but the customers liked it. They download the app and when they need a taxi they request it on their phone instead of calling in. Since they are registered with the app payment is automatically dealt with.

Easy Taxi is one that pops up with good reviews but I'm sure there are other options out there. (Doesn't look like they currently have any partners in the US but...)

Might be a good way to get a jump on your competition. Uber's business model uses this type of system and it is one reason why the taxi companies in the big cities are losing business to them, it is super convenient for the customer.
