Transcript

  • 1. GTC NOLA THINK CLEAN THINK GREEN THINK NOLA
  • 2. GREEN TAXIS
  • 3. “ Just another example of the lack of professionalism in this city. A cab driver is to be a professional driver, doing his job for hire, and responsible for the safety of his riders. Have you ever seen a professional cab driver? How many times have you ridden in a cab with little or no air conditioning? How many times has a cab driver scared the hell out of you when you were driving? These, most of them, are full blown idiots behind the wheel of a weapon! I have had to give them directions on how to get someplace. Idiots driving trashed out vehicles, being discourteous to other drivers, and ripping off the public. File a complaint against one and see what happens, nothing!” “ The third-world cabs that pick up fares AT the airport are the worst this former business traveler has EVER had the displeasure to ride in in this country. Old, dirty, lacking air-conditioning with drivers who only know the locations of hotels. Try coming in late at night. You get in a cab and have to give the cabbie directions to an address in New Orleans. That's rich. You'd think some would have enough pride in their work to at least learn the major thoroughfares in the city that butters their bread. Think again. They don't give a flip. And now they're complaining about a little modernization? New Orleans, which depends greatly on tourist dollars, would be better served getting rid of ALL of them because they have the potential to leave such a horrible first impression on visitors.” Actual customer comments from Nola.com GTC NOLA wants to revolutionize the taxicab business in New Orleans. We want every local and tourist to step out of the airport and breathe a sigh of relief knowing they will be riding in one of our cabs. We want you to call us knowing our fleet will get you to your exact destination comfortably and with the most direct route.
