Isis Taxi needs you to call

Isis Town and Country - - News -

IT HAS been a slow start for Isis Taxi Ser­vice but owner-op­er­a­tor Chris Mooyer is con­fi­dent things will change for the bet­ter.

Mr Mooyer started the ser­vice in re­sponse to over­whelm­ing com­ments both on so­cial me­dia and around town about the need for a taxi.

But sev­eral months into his one-man busi­ness he can only won­der where the cus­tomers are.

“When I first started there was a fan­tas­tic re­sponse but since then there hasn’t been too many peo­ple use it,” Mr Mooyer said.

“I love what I do. Be­ing able to meet peo­ple and be­ing out there all day in­stead of be­ing stuck in an of­fice is great.

“I used to drive li­mos in Rocky and that was good.”

The re­al­ity, like many other busi­nesses, is Mr Mooyer needs cus­tomers or he will be forced to park the van per­ma­nently.

“I got a lot of en­gage­ment but not many cus­tomers,” he said.

“I cover a fair range – from Howard, Biggen­den, up to Gin Gin and Woodgate – and it is only me which makes it hard.

“I saw this for sale and thought I’d have a go based on what peo­ple were say­ing.”
