Black cabs of London get bailout from China
Riki Stark, who drives a traditional black cab, said he paid £40 ($62.80) a week for his black cab, while colleagues paid much more. Many cabdrivers have started to display corporate advertising on their vehicles because of the higher costs.
Waiting for a customer near the Parliament building, Mr. Stark said he was glad that Manganese Bronze “got granted an extension” but doubted whether the company would survive in the long term.
“Don’t get me wrong,” he said. “I love this car. But it’s just not worth the money.”
