Service Quality for Taxis

Drive a taxi? How can you measure the quality of your service?
Lets see this example from Singapore:
First: Don’t get in accidents. The standard is not more than two accidents for every 10 million kilometers traveled.
Second: Answer your phone. In Singapore, cab companies are required to answer 90% of their calls, including a confirmation of availability in less than five minutes.
If these standards are not met, taxi cab companies are fined.
However no word about sticky floors and cardboard pine scents.
