Questions for Benjamin Cardoso,
founder and president LeCab
Why did you decide to launch this service in Paris?
“During my travels and while I was studying in London, I
was surprised by the quality of service in the private
transport sector. In Paris, the difficulty to find available
transport has always troubled me. I discovered Addison
Lee in London and wanted to offer the same service in
How are you different from your competitors?
“The first point of differentiation is that we have a standardized fleet of Peugeot 508
micro-hybrid e-HDI. Thus, our clients always have the same car and almost feel like
they are in their own car.
We also have an operations center that guarantees the quality of service 24/7.
We propose immediate bookings as well as bookings in advance. Moreover, we offer
an onboard service that is different and innovative.
All our drivers are carefully selected and trained by us. Quality of service, knowledge
of the city, a warm welcome, a smile, clothing, nothing is left to chance.”
In time do you wish to replace the taxis?
“Not at all. We believe that it is possible for VTC companies, such as LeCab, and
taxis to coexist. Our objective is not to reduce the number of taxis in Paris, it is to
reduce the number of individually owned cars! Cities like New York or London have
succeeded in combining the two different forms of transport. London has 25 000
Black Cabs (taxis) and 60 000 Minicabs (VTC), why not in Paris?”
