Taxi drivers income reduction due to covid??

Hi, I'm doing some research on this, so if youre a taxi driver let me know by how much your income or business has dropped since March with covid and has it increased at all recently or stayed the same.
If you could also put what County you work in that would be great

Thanks in advance

I'm in college doing statistics, so I earn about 10 euro an hour in my part time job.


If you don't want to say the amount you could give me the percentage your earnings have dropped since March.

Any help would be much appreciated

ahh... the aul college projects are back. Id suggest contacting the taxi drivers union and they'll probably have all these stats done out (although in true union form theyll claim the problem is much worse than it is)

this is a discussion forum, not a quick way to gather data for college.

I know 2 guys that drive a taxi and neither have bothered going back out since all this started. Both working for DHL or someone similar now.
