It is fairly common knowledge that there are some days of the year where taxi rides are requested more often than others. For example on New Years Eve, taxi dispatchers and drivers are armed and ready for an onslaw of phone calls and requests from party goers. However, did you know that TaxiFareFinder also keeps track of the most commonly requested routes?
With our TaxiFareFinder calculators supporting more than 2,000 cities worldwide we thought it would be fun to look at which taxi routes from around the world are requested most often by our loyal fans. It turns out the most popular requested ride across the globe is from Charles de Gaulle Airport to Central Paris. Our fans most love visiting the city of love and romance! Coming in second is JFK airport to Manhattan (NYC), we were actually a bit surprised that a NYC route didn’t manage to come in first as NYC is known for its abundant taxi use. However, if you look at the picture below depicting the top 5 requested routes, you will see that NYC manages to snag spots 2, 3, 4, and 5! Also if you visit the complete list of the top 30 most commonly requested rides on our TFF you will also notice that NYC routes show up 14 out of the 30 times, quite impressive! Maybe this list will help taxi drivers learn where the hot spots are for picking up customers.
