Shortage of cabs due to cricket

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A shortage of taxis on Saturday night in Melbourne may be a real possibility due to the Cricket World Cup final tomorrow between India and Sri Lanka. “I believe there will be a shortage,” said John Vlassopoulos, director, Amabassador taxis to Neos Kosmos. “It depends on the drivers but most cricket fans like to watch their matches live and that’s where the problem is.” With 95 per cent of the fleet being of Indian descent, Vlassopoulos said that “this could be devastating.” “In the taxi industry, the drivers are self-employed so they earn the money and they pay the operators 50 per cent of their takings. When major events like this happen it can be crippling to our industry and the city. Vlassopoulos said he is talking to his drivers to change their views and record the match and watch it later. He said that the government may also pitch in and have a 24 hour tram and bus service tonight.last_img
