And while the  taxi industry players are distracted by all the uproar over Uber, more competitors are moving into the market.

Maybe if plate owners and other rent-seeking incumbents spent less time pouring over Uber news stories and more time trying to figure out how to make their service cheaper and more appealing to customers, they'd have a future.





They can't be bothered.

Why?

Because they already know that they're well and truly stuffed.

When you demonstrate that you know the slightest thing about the Taxi Industry in Qld....I'll let you know.


I don't care what you think I know. Keeping on spinning - I'm just going to sit back and enjoy the carnage.

Like how you knew San Fran taxi plate prices were surging in value ?

Yeah. Sure.

Since you know everything about everything and are so sure of how awesome your investment in taxi plates was - why are you even bothered about Uber?

If you can show me where I said  San Fransico prices were surging, I'll bare my arse.  I did say they were returning to pre Uber prices.  I am bothered because Government has allowed an outlaw into town and have been rendered gun shy by nervous Nellie politicians.  We are fighting back, and we will see the Ubers off.  They cannot make money on that model, as is obvious.  It is also obvious you ignore that fact of financial unviability.

They are now left with only two choices.  Increase their prices or lower driver take.  Either way....they are on a hiding.

Either way - it was still wrong.

No - I'm ignoring your obsessive focus on one company. Uber could go under tomorrow and it won't stop the tide from coming in. The conclusion will still be the same.

Oh yeah, I am going to allow my wife to get into a vehicle with some uncertified, untraceable, person, because an online program said they, and their car, were OK. Great idea, then we'll be able to say we totally like on the cutting edge of technology, instead of using a commercial cab company which is so like 20th century.

Queue the "take my wife" joke.

Police pursuit...
Finally pull over..
Didn't you hear the siren and see the lights?
Yes I did but my wife ran off with a copper and I thought you were trying to give her back!

Both Uber and Taxi drivers must have a criminal background check.

When you book with Uber, before you ride you can see the drivers rating. Can you see that with a taxi driver?

As for untraceable, if you've booked through the app, it's traceable.

Obviously if an Uber driver intends you serious harm, a big red light won't flash in a police station who can dispatch the flying squad to track you in real time with a big red circle moving around a map, like in the moofies, but that is no different from a taxi.

Mundane.  I use the word Uber as representative all these rideshare wankers.  None of them are making money, and all are throwing capital in to shore themselves up.

If they cannot play by their Rules, take Uber bat and ball and go home.  Great!  The ride share business model is an abject failure as it is now....it will become much worse if they have to pay their drivers the way they treat them....as employees.

You are wrong Lisa. He does work and he does hire criminals as taxi drivers. I read this in a place where only facts are posted.
