6 RUNS IN 11.5 HOURS
Didn't even break $75.00 on the meter.
According to the drivers who worked, Sunday and Monday were just as bad. We are in the doldrums. Which is common this time of year. Hotel occupancy is down, condos sit vacant, businesses are cutting back on employee hours.
I heard that one dayshift driver only had one fare the entire shift, for $10.00.
We have 4 seasons, just like everyone else. They are very busy, moderately active, busy, calm.
Since income in a tourist based economy is cyclical, those who failed to plan for the slow period are struggling. Those of us who have been around for awhile have stashed funds away to cover this annual period. We typically lose about 25% of our drivers during this period.
Hopefully something will happen tonight worthy of note.
Have a great day.
