And it said it would take about an hour. She said she thought it would be too expensive if it is like an hour taking far away. I explained her that it took an hour because buses usually go all the way around the city, but taxis go straight to the destination, so that it would have cost her under 10 dollars and taking only 20 minutes if she took a cab.

Some deregulation proponents are less opposed to airport taxi regulation than to regulation of other taxi services. They argue that if an airport regulates prices for taxis in its taxi queues, such regulation has fewer disadvantages than citywide regulation. An airport may determine prices or organize different queues for taxi services of different qualities and prices.
It can be argued whether rules set by the owner of an airport are regulation or just a business model.

However, the airports should either set their own price ceilings or allow for price competition by altering the queue system.
Opponents of taxi deregulation argue that deregulation will result in high taxi driver turnover rates which may cause the number of less-qualified taxi drivers to increase, dishonest business practices such as price gouging especially on airport routes and circuitous routing, and poor customer service.
