Yay Uber you ripper!

Link.

And.....there are now TWO significant legal actions on foot here.  One started today against Uber itself and the other (totally separate from the first) commenced in March is against the Qld Government.

Game seriously on.

Generally speaking, taxis are dirty & smelly, and the drivers are arrogant and grumpy.

Not always, but generally speaking.

100% of the times that I've been in an Uber, they've been clean & air-conditioned, and the drivers have been friendly and polite.

Moreover, the Uber fares are always at least 50% less than that of a taxi.

I have sympathy for struggling taxi drivers, however, the taxi companies have been screwing us punters for too long.

It's about time we got something going our way.

The taxi industry had ages to lift their game after Uber arrived but thought they were arrogant and thought things would never change.

The booking system for companies like 1300cabs is now better but it's still a 50/50 change you'll get a sewer on wheels.

Uber are 100% perfect every time. No 2GB or Indian music blaring at you and you get interesting and polite drivers.

My mum reckons most of them even help her in with the shopping.

Apparently if you get 1000 used Indian taxi beaded seat covers and boil them up then distill the water down to one drop, you end up with an aphrodisiac that will make any woman crazy with desire.

No, that is no aphrodisiac Gordon, at least not to us, that is a potent rape drug. One drop knocks her out so every man in the village can take part.

And the Uber driver gets less ... despite all the BS to the contrary.

Now there's another company operating .... called

"Ola" .... and Gordy it's Indian owned and run.  Grin

They advertise that the driver gets a bigger share of the fare ...  Grin but they lose it behind the scenes with fees & charges to the company.

They come in at low prices but have a system that kicks in after they get you on board they start as they call it "price surging" aka price gouging.

Their reputation prior to starting outside of India isn't good ... like Indias Dodgy Bros the Adanis in comes another foreign Ride Share company of the same ilk.

That they use a name that sounds Spanish instead of Indian speaks of what are they hiding?

Taiksee Taiksee ... Jaldee jaldee  Grin

I am not a taxi user... so cannot talk about service..

what I am talking about is.. the unfairness that someone who has bought a business... and thats what a taxi licence is.. a business.


which until UBER   it was required by govt made laws....to have one.......

same as a liquor licence..

imagine someone setting up a stall selling grog at lower prices because they dont have to buy a liquor licence????...

these people in good faith.. bought this business maybe for their retirement  ... and suddenly its worthless....

because of convenient rule changes...

I would be devastated to be honest and I doubt anyone of you  would shrug and walk away.....if you had paid a fortune  either.... Angry Angry

a lot of decent people are affected by this......

as fair go aussies   you should be behind these owner drivers   

I dont care what country they come from..they need our support...

I'd be behind the taxi owner drivers more if it wasn't for the fact that they've been ripping me off and giving me poor service for the last 35 years or so.

I don't want to see anyone lose their jobs, however, I'm not going to continue to pay outrageously inflated prices for an inferior service either.

That's just madness.

Uber gives me faster, more reliable, friendlier, cleaner, and a much cheaper service - I'd be crazy to go back to taxis.

If you had the choice between a dirty restaurant with rude waiters, seats smelling of cigarette smoke, second rate food, and a bill of $50 or, a clean, air-conditioned restaurant with friendly waiters, clean tables & chairs, fresh & tasty food, and a final bill of only $25, which would you choose?

like I pointed out greg   I havent used a taxi or uber in years.....so I cant say anything about service   and to tar all taxi owners with the same brush  is the same as calling all Muslims terrorists....

it isnt the right thing to do.. Angry

we are talking about someones INVESTMENT actually being STOLEN FROM THEM>..

they didnt ask to BUY A LICENCE...

the govt made that ruling.....and with that ruling went certain... certainties that now no longer exist...

and I believe that is WRONG... they should be compensated...

now because you have had a bad deal in you neck of the woods  every taxi owner in OZ  will have to lump it as far you are concerned...

I find your reasoning.... well unreasonable. Angry

NO THEY ARE NOT..

your experience means bugger all  when you are talking the whole of Australia..

just because the laws on health and cleanliness in WA is lousy ..
