Taxi drivers say they are optimistic about business in the new year, despite virus concerns.

 



From the airports… To the seaports… And the central hub of downtown Nassau… A taxi driver is many times one of the first Bahamian ambassadors a visitor comes into contact with. However, after a tough 2020 and 2021, taxi drivers say business is slowly starting to look up. With cruise ships in port, drivers say they are once again able to make a living, compared to sluggish business six, even three months ago.

Drivers tell Our News they have seen their business double in a matter of months –  a steady rise since June 2021 when taxi drivers said they were approaching pre-pandemic income levels. But, it was a long road getting to this point, between lockdowns, curfews, and coming up with the funds to get vehicles licensed and inspected to get back on the road.

Now veteran taxi driver Derek Hudson says drivers are looking forward to see what 2022 has in store for the industry.
