The Commission for Taxi Regulation - quote from Wikipedia
The Commission for Taxi Regulation (also An Coimisiún Um Rialáil Tacsaithe and Taxi Regulator) was a public body in Ireland that existed between 2004 and 2011 regulating small public service vehicles (SPSVs) - the generic term for taxis, wheelchair accessible taxis, hackneys and limousines.
Taxis and wheelchair-accessible taxis are allowed to pick up passengers in the street or at a stand and have their fares calculated by a meter; hackneys and limousines do not use meters and are not permitted to pick up passengers in the street or at a stand.
The Commission set a single maximum fare structure for taxis for all places in the Republic of Ireland, although drivers are allowed to offer discounts and customers are permitted to give tips to drivers.
Kathleen Doyle was appointed the Commissioner for Taxi Regulation in 2007
The best options for the transport of persons
Organizing the departure of many people may be quite a complicated task. Depending on how large a group are going to travel and how far we want to choose, there are many possibilities for communication. How to choose the best option? Definitely worth it to shop around for hiring a driver, for example, the bus or bus. It is, however, convert costs and determine how much would have to pay the tour participant, if you would choose to set form of transport. Interestingly, sometimes it may be that the taxi is much cheaper than renting a form of transit bus. In this case, very relevant factor is the number of people going on a journey, and this is where we want to go.
Definition of taximeter
Taximeters can include several accessories, or act as components in larger dispatching/control systems. Features include:
Fraud control and prevention (on the part of the owner or operator), through the impression of control tickets or computer monitoring. Additionally, taximeters are often visually sealed by a municipal weights and scales authority after initial calibration.
Radio communication, allowing trip status to be monitored by a dispatcher or supervisor.
Dispatching of trip assignments through radio or data systems.
Interaction with GPS systems to assist with dispatching and to provide security.
Seat sensors that detect the presence of a passenger (to prevent a cab from carrying fares without activating the taximeter).
Credit or prepaid card support.
