Is advertising on devices within a limo taxi considered useful as a marketing platform?

I am aiming to make it more attractive for hotels to use our mobile app to book a ride in our limo taxis. To do this an option would be to allow dynamic advertising within the taxi for their outlets, promotions, etc. Would this be considered as a marketing platform and thus not only allow us to break the ice with hotel management to open accounts and use our App to book rides but also provide us a revenue stream?

This might actually be a good idea to target in the Ride Share market. I know that the average Ride Share driver does not make that much money per ride so they could be open to additional revenue opportunities. This could also potentially be a solution for short surveys, where riders are rewarded with special deals at local venues that could lead to revenue from both survey companies and area venues.

Verifone has built a network that allows for dynamic advertising within taxis. While not exactly what you're talking about, you should check it out (and similar offerings for the taxi market) as there is a lot of overlap:http://www.verifonemedia.com/

Verifone has a lot of credit card terminals in taxis... why do you think so many have large color screens?

I like John's suggestion to target the Ride Share market as there are fewer entrenched players competing for in-car advertising space.

Some of our top clients do advertise in taxi for an app install. The call to action to be able to track those installs/post install events is usually generated from a QR code in the ad or a unique # to text you the app ("text 3455 to download the app today!")
