AskPOB Credit Card Printer Survey Results.


AskPOB has conducted an independent survey to establish driver opinion on credit card payment printers used in licensed London taxis. AskPOB is an impartial third party, working in collaboration with trade organisations and groups, to reach as many drivers as possible and to understand how drivers would like credit card printers to feature in their working environment.

The consultation received 1030 licensed London taxi driver responses between 9pm 15 April 2016 and midnight 18th April 2016.

59 responses were removed due to:

•  duplicate entries

•  unlicensed London taxi driver entries

•  Insufficient or false data submitted

This report is an overview of the data collected.
AskPOB can generate a more comprehensive report cross-referencing all driver demographics collected with driver opinions.

We now have to wait and see if TfL take any notice of this independent survey, or just impose what they had in mind anyway.

AskPOB only had a little over 48 hours to get the message out with this.
It was posted on Twitter, Facebook and Taxi leaks extensively. But it's hard to reach the whole trade over a single weekend.
Even so it got as many replies as the TfL consultation got and they had months to put theirs out. Also their consultation featured in all trade publications.
So well done Perry big thumbs up with this.

I agree we should provide card facilities.
It shouldn't cost us a single penny.
We don't need a fixed unit in the back, hand held is fine.
It should not be paired with the meter, I adjust fares, fixed prices, and if something malfunctions; gotta lose more time & money getting it fixed.
Still here, Brian.
