Hi,

I'm in my 40s. I have driving experience of 20 over years.

I am considering becoming a taxi or PHV driver to feed family.

Still have 15 years of flat installments.

I need a car to send and fetch my kids from school.

I am looking for a 7 seater so I can also use it to transport family.

Do you recommend Taxi or PHV?

Which company provides a 7 seater, preferably hybrid, for rental?

If taxi, which co?

If PHV, which rental co?

I am planning to take TDVL at CDG.

I appreciate all advice.

Thank you very much.

Self employed. Not doing good. Children's primary school is far away. I am currently sending and fetching. No tutor also. Teaching myself. Wife not working.

I understand the long hours, stress and health issues to make a living in this trade. I can push myself.

U can try taxi night shift so daytime can send kids to sch

Phv hard to earn nowadays and since u need to send kids to sch u will miss out morning peak weekdays

Taxi - rental + petrol/diesel cost

Phv - above + 20% comm to platform

7s doesnt matter to taxi only different boarding rate.

Phv have more 7s jobs on weekends then weekdays so unless u need a 7s yourself

Currently, I send my kids to school by 7am. I fetch them around 2pm.

So between 7am to 1pm, I can drive. (6 hrs)

I also intend to drive from 3pm to 6pm, so I can teach them from 7pm to 10pm. (3 hrs)

After that, I can drive from 10pm to 1am. (3 hrs)

2am to 6am Sleep.

I am thinking of this driving schedule so that I can drive 10 to 12 hrs on weekdays. I am treating it as full time job.

Also, is it advisable to do OMO so I can push myself whenever I can.

My family more than 5. I need the 7 seater for my family than for picking PAXs. If can pick, bonus.

If I rent a saloon, I can't use the car to transport family when needed.

Which taxi co has 7 seater hybrid?
