Helsingin taksi 301

Service agreement

Founded in 2018, Helsingin Taksi offers high-quality and clearly priced taxi services to private individuals and companies in the greater Helsinki area..


Background:

The number of taxi permits has increased sharply in the greater Helsinki area since the Act on Transport Services entered into force. Since then, over 1,000 new taxi entrepreneurs have appeared and the number is steadily rising.

There are currently four major dispatch companies in the greater Helsinki area. New taxi entrepreneurs feel that the major players' services are expensive, with some of the required service agreements costing up to 30,000 euros, while others charge a high commission (more than 20%) based on net sales. The companies are owned by the taxi drivers. This is why there are many (an estimated 800) taxis in the greater Helsinki area that are not included under any dispatch service, simply driving fares via their mobile phones and at taxi ranks.
