Driver shortage anticipated as demand for taxis, ride-bookings increase

Recruiting is always a challenge

Meanwhile, the owner of Aaron Taxi in Sudbury, Mike Sanders, said recruiting new drivers is always difficult since hours are long and there are other risks involved.

"It was a challenge before, it remains a challenge," he said. 

Sanders is also anticipating a surge in demand that will come as more restrictions are lifted. 

He was able to keep all of his staff on throughout the pandemic, even though some didn't get a lot of customers. Because of this, he said the workforce at Aaron Taxi is in decent shape.

"So, we can handle a bit of surge," Sanders said, though there will still be times when people will have to wait. 

"I hope people are patient."
