New company proposes a ride-hailing service similar to Uber in Antigua


The Cabinet invited the head of one of the Taxi Associations and an entrepreneur to acquaint Members with the driver-services which the new company is offering.

Much unlike Uber and other driver-services provided by way of appointments and computer apps, the new operators will only employ licensed taxi drivers and licensed taxicabs to fulfil the requests for driver-services.

A database of those drivers and cars has been compiled, and single females especially, who travel to Antigua and wish to achieve higher levels of security, will be the primary market which the new service intends to capture.

The taxi-drivers will receive the full amount of the costed service; the company will exact a small surcharge which it will add to the pre-determined price.

The firm is registered with the Intellectual Property Office as a limited liability company (L.L.C.). 

The Cabinet was given the assurance that the new service will not diminish the taxi-drivers’ incomes, but rather supplement the same.

  1. Did you read “head of one of the taxi associations”? He is an Antiguan as are the members of his association. So how is the local man being cut out? Why not read and understand before making stupid comments.
