Taxi Driving in Miami and Medallions for Sale


Taxi Reform Starts with Better Working Conditions for Drivers

from TransitMiami.com



"If you follow local headlines at all, you may have noticed that Miami’s taxi system has been under intense scrutiny for the last few months. The media has cited a litany of complaints from residents and tourists alike about the conditions of cars, poor customer service, and the lack of credit card machines in taxis. At present, the Miami-Dade County Commission has several reform proposals on the table that would significantly change the for-hire transportation market. These changes include among them mandated credit card machines in all cabs servicing Miami International Airport and the Port of Miami, a sweeping reform program called “Ambassador Cabs” for those same two areas supported by Mayor Carlos Gimenez, and an overhaul of the limousine ordinance to make way for digital dispatch services like Uber to operate in Miami. Proponents of these ordinances argue that these are necessary reforms to bring Miami’s taxis into the 21st century."

  1. Every time I hear taxi medallions selling for a million in NYC, 400 Ks in Miami or 350 K in Chicago scratch my head and try to figure out where are the economics and numbers behind owning taxi medallion?
    As an owner of medallion which you lease out, you probably walk away with net profit of 20-25 Ks a year at most ....
    ....or even if you are owner operator with shift driver to help you out, you will be hard pressed to take home 45 grand a year.
    So, question repeat itself, where are the economics behind owning taxi medallion?
    Could someone explain this to me? thx

    1. Most buyers in NYC treat medallions as a "safe" investments
      They figure that 50 thousand income a year on 1 million, which equals 5% is better than 1 or 2% at the bank.
