Transport Buisness




Hello to all here,
For my information I would like to hear from the people who are in transport buisness in canada as I hear a lot of people from others having there own trucks and taxis. What is the benifit in this buisness or a job is better where you come back to your house every day.How much does a taxi cost in Toronto if i want to buy my own. Is it difficult to drive a taxi in the starting if you are not familier with the city. Any thing about this type of buisness will be helpfull for me as I am still planing what to do in canada.
Regards
Kesar

the best advantage is that you are never out of work. In jobs you can get laid off any time.
Taxis in toronto cost around 30000 to 45000 (especially that the new law states you cant use an old car to be put into the taxi service)
The license itself in downtown toronto costs around 100000 CAD
Disadvantage? You work 12 hours a day / 7 days a week to make approx 50k / year.
its not difficult to drive in toronto, just takes time to get to know things, although you have to pass a test for the taxi license

Don't know whether you're a bit sarcastic or not but here's what I understand of Faisal's e-mail. You work every day of the year for about 12 hours each day. The compensation you get in return is C$50,000. Hope this helps clarify the literal meaning of Faisal's post.

Regards

This is the fee of only one license plate for a taxi in downtown TO! this information is during OCT/NOV 2003. It might have increased by now; or perhaps decreased.

Transport Business
Any insight in to the truckking business, there appears to have a lot of scope in this.

I intend to get into this soon, and will be happy to drive my own truck within Ontario or Canada .

I was asked to invest CAD 10000 to buy a truck on lease with a gurantee of business contract.

Would love to hear the plus and minus factors of this
