Let's say Uber takes out all local taxi companies across the US and other countries. Does everyone think that Uber will keep their same low black market prices? If you do, then I have a bridge that I would like to sell you. Additionally, It is illegal to price gauge, or in Uber speak, price surge. In the US, it is illegal to raise the price of a snow shovel just because it snowed the night before. Lastly, with local taxi companies, if you forget something in the car or have a complaint, there is a number to call and speak to someone to retrieve your items or discuss a certain complain you had. With Uber who are you going to call?? GHOSTBUSTERS??
Hello, I am a 72 year old women who uses a folding wheelchair for out-of-house trips. I have used uber from time to time but more often than not the drivr has made a fuss about the folding wheelchair eventhough it fits in any car boot just like other luggage. They have also said that I need to pay an extra fee for them taking my wheelchair. On one occassion, the driver couldn't stop immediately outside my house and I asked if he would please help with getting the wheelchair to my front door. He refused to do it so I was stuck with a wheelchair in th street which I couldn't manouvre. I don't user uber regularly as I don't feel safe with your drivers given that I am usually travelling alone and am disabled. If your drivers continue to behave like this I think you should be banned.

They only providing technology, and work like commission agent, eating our local driver business, without any risk, charges as per there will and fancy, no one can question them, not even government whom we elect them for betterment of our people, but they get trap on working international company model, which is not favorable to Indian standard, uber have not invested any amount but earning handsome amount, and destroying our economic
Most taxis are licenced by local authoraties. It is they who decide the cost, level of safety, experience and fitness of drivers. The cost of this is usually borne by the operators through licenses etc. Taxi firms do not decide to keep out competition. In most democratic societies this form of regulation has evolved over time to get rid of unsafe vehicles and unscrupulace drivers. To allow uber to circumvent these checks and balances while at the same time forcing existing taxis to play by the rules is foolish at best and sinister at worst.
Uber are a corporation that is being invested in by Goldman Sachs, one of the very powerful corporations that run our world. This is a detriment to the economy of some countries because the money will be taken out of them and given to the elitists that run Goldman Sachs. This isn't done by normal taxis. And to those who say 'BUET ITZ DA FUEWTUR", WHO THE HELL CARES!!! So overall Uber should be banned from places that already have a taxi service.
At the end of the day it is illegal. None of the government in any of the countries they are operating in can regulate them, which makes them an illegal black market service. I wonder if they pay the due business or income tax (both driver and uber, I doubt).
Their app also sucks. Allowing driver to charge for cancelled trips etc. which normal taxi service cannot do so.
Uber sucks a lot because reasons about cars and uber plus uber a an illegal taxi service called uber that was started by the guy who started uber who started uber because he wanted to start uber because he liked the word uber so he started the company called uber
Look at how much it costs to run a taxi
Insurance, comercial vechicle licence, taxi licence itself, radio room fees, car must be under 6 years old, car must pass regular inspections, Uber doesn't have any of this
Let's see how the compulsory third party goes
When someone gets hurt
The report found Uber has reduced the risks associated with getting from A to B because both passengers and drivers have profiles that can be checked before pick-up.
“The Uber application may remove anonymity, thus reducing an incentive to commit crime and allowing ease of reporting of any incidents,” the report said.
Another safety measure is the “share my ETA” feature.
Riders are able to share their journey in real time with friends and family, which is vital in case there is an emergency.
There are actually also really stringent rules for people wanting to become Uber drivers and there are a number of vehicle and personal requirements people have to meet.
To be an UberX driver you must be 21 and have a full driver’s licence.
You must not have had three minor offences, three demerit points or less, in the past three years, and no major offences, four demerit points or more, in the past three years.
Any drug or alcohol offences or a prior police record will cross you off the list of suitable UberX drivers.
Rules are also strict for vehicles used to pick up paying customers. They must have four doors or more, be less than nine years old, be registered and not have decal or commercial branding.
UBER is like a taxi, yet without the regulations. Taxi's abide by city rules and regulations whereas UBER does not. No other business is permitted to operate within a city without being subject to rules and regulations so why is UBER except. The UBER technology should only be available to taxi decrease. Restaurants follow regulations, so do other businesses, so UBER should as well.
Uber provides employment to workers and to ban Uber is to keep prices high for cab journeys reserving it as a regular experience just for the rich. Black cab drivers want it banned because it means that they have to be more competitive. There's no need for Uber to even be regulated by the government, natural market forces will push Uber to regulate themselves with contracts promising safety to their customers while the tax payer who never uses Uber doesn't have to foot part of the bill for regulation so it's much more fair.
If you want a textbook of example of government intervention obstructing competition to prop up monopolies, look no further than the Uber fiasco. The simple fact of the matter is Uber is supplying transportation demands at a lower cost than the heavily regulated taxi companies, and the taxi companies don't want the competition.
