I would like to provide a minibus service: a customer makes an order through a web page and a minibus picks this customer up to ride him anywhere he wants. The payment is done by a credit card on the order web page.
Most probably the customer would have to share the ride with other customers in this minibus.
Does a company need a special license to provide such service in California?
(I have asked this question since I don't think that such kind of service can be classified as a taxi cab service).
UPD: If we assume that ordering a trip through a web site makes this trip 'prearranged', then we can say that we have a chauffeur service, and no taxi medallion is needed. Right?
