Re: “Uber Time?

I'm currently a Reno Nevada resident and this city came under the same type of protest by cab companies when uber came to town. Here are the facts. Cab companies hate competition, people are sick and tired of being ripped off by cabs, cabs are gross and the drivers are rude and questionable. Waiting for a cab is time consuming and costs people money in terms of time. Now uber on the other hand works on a rating system, drivers are rated based on time of arrival, cleanliness of their vehicle, cleanliness of themselves, and how nice they are to the customer. If their rating drops below a 4.5 then they lose the ability to drive. Now in terms of uber sacking money out of the economy, that is not true at all. Drivers get to keep 90% of the fair and they live where they work, they gas up in that town, they get oil changes, they eat food, and so on. This is common sense and it creates part time and full time jobs for people in a rocky economy. Now I'm moving to Bend in a few weeks with my family and I am counting on uber coming to town to help supplement my income as it has here in Nevada. I hope the city makes the right decision.
