Carrots not Sticks Mr. Wilton
Macquarie Bank's Max Moore-Wilton complains about lack of peak hour taxis (as well as quarantine queues and rail service) at his
Neither the Government nor the taxi industry owes Max (the Axe) anything, let alone preferential taxi treatment for Mr. Moore's money making machine. Mr. Moore might do much better with tried and proven private enterprise incentives for taxis to come to his airport.
Taxis are forced to pay a $2.50 toll which they then have to retrieve from Mr. Moore's passengers. Instead, a peak hour incentive payment to taxis for servicing Mr. Moore's passengers might improve his service for airport passengers. Together with improved respect from Mr. Moore's airport 'security' staff and airport Police (ban all Capsicum spray on taxi drivers), improved taxi queuing arrangements and driver facilities, would all lift Macquarie Bank's taxi services for its flying public. Improved taxi services for airport travelers are entirely in Mr. Moore's hands!
