UBER IS A 4 LETTER WOR(L)D.(so is LYFT!
America is mobile/but not everyone has a car.
Those who have cars often drive them solo
Some wish to make money from their car.
Hence UBER,LYFT and a host of Taxi alternatives
Some cities welcome Uber/others ban them
Taxi drivers feel a threat to their income
My friend has a new car,and he drives for Uber
He can only drive when his health permits
So his income is less.And less with discounts.
So-is Uber a service for car owners?passengers?or the Corporation?
Is it an effective alternative to mass transit?
Do people want/need/desire Uber and its competitors?
And what if it becomes a feral force,immune to regulation?
w/deep pockets to cover all fines and litigation?
How much does fear of change stop inevitable changes?
Ask the Luddites!
