Most islanders would not book a Facebook taxi, survey finds
Thursday 31st January 2013, 1:00PM GMT.
Around 20% of island residents would risk booking an illegal taxi online, a Guernsey Press survey has revealed.
Some 11 out of 50 young adults surveyed in Town yesterday said they would consider booking a ‘Facebook taxi’ from a complete stranger.
Many of those polled said they had organised lifts through friends online.
But a large majority labelled it ‘too dangerous’ to book a lift from a complete stranger advertising their services through the social media site.
