Nah Ill rather ride the NOPE train. They are an emerging business with an emerging idea bound to fail. As far as for the consumers, the economy is not getting any better, period. The gov still does not realize that creating money out of nothing is not called growth. The taxi companies are already getting out of closing down and some going to court and file bunkruptcy.
I was in Manhattan, NY delivering an overweight steel beam. The taxi drivers there are barely non-existent.
So the Idea of Uber and Lyft maybe be a correction to reform the taxi business. It doesn't mean its good for the uber/lyft driver, as a matter of fact its a ticket to either failure or slavery.
What does a young kid know about entrepreneurship? Buying a car, owning it, maintaining it. Fuel and time management. Competition with other drivers? I heard Uber will just make you sign some papers and give you a pimped out iphone 6. Again, what does a young kid know about contracts, laws, regulations and especially walk-away penalties/charges?
Is Uber Liable for the driver? I wouldn't use Uber if the driver is not insured and risk getting myself in an accident losing a limb or two.1
