I think the primary function of a unified color scheme should be to make licensed taxis easily distinguishable & identifyable as a taxi to those who want to use them. I don't think red necessarily does a good job of that, as red is a common non-taxi car color, and "branding opportunities" shouldn't be the primary consideration.

I'd like to see the cabs painted a distinctive solid color (e.g.: yellow), which would be cheaper than the proposed multi-color designs. In addition, with a lower-cost paint job, it'd be easier to get existing taxis to switch to the new color scheme.

Either way, all the proposed designs are hideous.
