ProsthelyTaxi

Uber like service where your ride is free in exchange for being evangelized

Particularly here in America where public transportation is not that good, a lot of us without cars need rides. And there are tons of religious people who want to convert us to their faith. So I figure combine the two. Have a Uber like service where drivers of any religion could sign up to give free rides to anyone who wants them. The only cost is said passengers would get evangelized to and maybe given tracts. It could be compared to the cheap vacation that comes with the timeshare presentation as the catch.

       Sounds fare... keep the change.   

       Their business model would revolve around people slurring their speech in Vegas when asking for their most popular competitor, ProstiTaxi. And don't confuse their least popular competitor, 'ProstraTaxi, where a free colonoscopy is offered for rides longer than 20 minutes.

       It could be an option in an ordinary taxi.   

       An audio/video unit in back seat, gives a credit to the driver if allowed by the passenger to play any of twenty pitches. Commercial or religious presentations. Will Coke, Pepsi, or LDS pay for my fare ? Or pay it myself and ride in peace.

       //ProsthelyTaxi// I assumed this would be a small motorized, fee-charging wheelbase for artificial legs. Have you considered the possibility that you actually meant "ProselyTaxi"?

       I can see this taking off with the (surely eventual) Google driverless taxis. Religious movements will pay the fare if riders agree to listen to a spiel. [+]

       Abe and Herb are standing outside a church that has a sign Convert now and get $10 in 10 minutes.   

       Herb says why not. Abe says what, aren't you ashamed of yourself? Your Jewish! Herb says c'mon, you don't even eat kosher. Abe says, you can go, I'm waiting here.   

       Ten minutes later Herb emerges from the church and Abe asks him: Did you get the ten dollars?   

       Herb says: You Jews! All you think about is money!
