Taxi research – Research by some local journalists, prompted by the latest episode of violence against minicab drivers last Friday, has produced some interesting results. Research involved taking the same trip three times, from Terminal 1 of the airport to the Meridien Hotel on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice.

The first journey was taken in a cab waiting in the official rank outside, so no need to hail. € 35. The second identical journey was in a private hire minivan, known as VTCs in France, summoned by using the app Über, which arrived in 1 min. € 26. The third was a private car summoned by using Über Pop, driven by a Russian national who works as a delivery driver in the morning, and supplements his income by driving in the afternoons. A 15 minute wait and a cost of € 8.
