There will always be a need for taxi drivers. Job opportunities for taxi drivers are expected to grow faster than the average for all careers through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The high turnover rate in this occupation means that many of the new job openings that develop in the future will come when drivers leave their jobs to go into another kind of work. In addition, as the American population increases and traffic becomes more congested, the need for taxi drivers will increase, especially in metropolitan areas. At present many drivers work on a part-time basis, and that situation is likely to continue.
