The reason we are in this mess with ridesharing is because the current taxi system was and is undependable, and there are not enough taxis [“Vote delayed on driver caps for Lyft, uberX, Sidecar,” The Today File, March 6].
Even though Uber is more expensive, it arrives when they say it will, often only 5 minutes away. The cars are clean, the drivers are friendly and they service more territory than taxis. There have been many times I have called for a cab, it doesn’t show and have called Uber instead.
I’m trying to use the taxis, but they are making it hard to like them. There are not enough taxis to service the demand. Go ahead and get everyone on the same playing field, and let them have as many vehicles on the road as the market will allow.
