Kwon Ae-ri's friendly economy starts. Reporter Kwon recently said he would increase the number of cars by 10,000 on a van calling service, and withdrew it yesterday (16th)?
Yes. Have you ever used an anchor? (I think I've burned a couple of times.) There are 1,400 cars on the big white vans that say 'Take'.
There are already 1.25 million people on board. On the seventh, he announced that he plans to have 10,000 vehicles, seven times more than he now operates, by next year, but he turned the plan off yesterday.
For reference, there are around 70,000 taxis in Seoul. It was going to grow very quickly and then turned to white paper.
I stepped back to wait for the legislative and legal institutionalization of the taxi reorganization plan that came out in July.
The taxi industry and the government have reacted very strongly to this plan?
Yes. To sum up the situation briefly, the public transport that passengers call or pick up is virtually a taxi, and at the end of last year it appeared as a niche service. The growth was very fast.
There was a strong backlash from the taxi industry. The taxi industry is a license system. To drive a taxi, you need to buy a license for tens of millions of dollars these days. The policy is to control the total number of taxis.
But riding is like never before. Based on IT technology, when a passenger calls through the app, the car comes and usually calculates the fare based on distance.
Technically, there is an environment where people can easily use cars, not taxis. Legally, I have also found a niche to avoid the taxi system.
Tadashi is a legal car rental. Ride passengers actually rent the white van at that time.
I rent a car and I drive. However, there are exceptions in the current law that car rental companies may send a driver because a large van such as a ride may be poor at driving me.
By combining this exception with new technology, a new service was introduced that didn't require a license.
Drivers are paid or hired a freelancer. So the existing taxi industry, which was only licensed in the world, threatened a living threat.
So if you want to get into the transportation market with new services like the ride with the Department of Homeland and the taxi industry after repeated conflicts and negotiations, you can actually buy an existing taxi licence and increase the car by the amount of the taxi. Ahn came out in July.
But in the last week, he actually resisted and withdrew this decision.
The government said it had a very strong warning.
Yes. You may also be able to repair the gaps in the current law, as I just mentioned, and the ones that may be legal to ride. In short, he warned that if he insisted on rolling up 10,000 cars, he could make them illegal.
In fact, Tadda has been opposed to the win-win plan in July, but some 10,000 analysts say that bringing 10,000 cars was also a way to form some sort of issue.
The development of new services is now technically possible, but is it a win-win plan that does not violate the existing taxi license system?
In fact, this issue, which has been silent for a while since July, has been talking about this.
What do you think? Did the taxi drivers try to ride free on the transportation market where they had to buy a license, or are they new markets in their own right?
On the one hand, is Tada really a innovation? It is said to be a ride sharing service, but there is also a claim that the app is a rental car.
For reference, Korea recently created a new sharing economy item in its GDP calculations.
Like the Airbnb which lends to tourists when I leave the house, I share the idle assets with each other like this, creating a shared value.
Tadda is a company that uses digital and pays salaries to drivers. The US, Europe and Japan apply similar standards.
But there's also a clear controversy that this is now an administrative judgment, not an absolute standard. It's not like Korea is in conflict with taxis.
In the United States, Europe, and Southeast Asia, taxis and similar services create very similar conflicts, with the expansion of new services slowing down a bit. The debate on this issue can be said to start from now on.
[Friendly economy] market free ride or innovation… How about a ride?
Kwon Ae-ri's friendly economy starts. Reporter Kwon recently said he would increase the number of cars to 10,000 during a van calling service, and withdrew it yesterday? Yes. Have you ever used an anchor? There are 1,400 cars on the big white vans that are 'taking', and there are probably few people in the metropolitan area who have never seen them before.
