Most of the taxi drivers I know own their own cabs, and are sent out by a taxi franchise company, these are called co-operatives. I don't know what the split is, however, I believe it is less than 50%, but it works much as your idea. So you haven't come up with anything new. And there are big costs involved with running a taxi franchise company, even if all drivers own their own cabs. Also, it's a different type of license, which is almost impossible to get, and a very expensive process, lots of donations to politicians. There are only 9 taxi franchise companies in LA, and they control over 2300 cabs. No way you're getting a franchise. Many of the taxi companies with different names are actually part of the same company.

Time for a new idea!

OK so if the drivers pay for their own cars and all of their expenses what is it that you add to the business that would make them want to give half of their earnings to you? Why wouldn't they just go get their own license, keep 100% of the profits and leave you standing on the side of the road.

You have to add value to the product or you don't deserve to earn a dime.

Stupid plan. You haven't thought this through at all.
