“the system was being abused by those in the youth bracket who were using Uber at $3 to go to Starbucks (as an example), purchase a drink, then go back to school or meet their friends.”
‘Uber Was Supposed To Be Our Public Transit’
@lnxw48a1 it's also frustrating that there is competition between Uber (an international company) and every single individual municipality. This is an unfair match.
If mobile applications and data can improve public transportation, then municipalities need to work together to address this.
Maybe I'm naive and just don't understand how sophisticated Uber's product is, but it's frustrating to see Uber's pockets lined with public money for private gain.
