The only way left to reduce traffic on London roads, is to encourage people to leave their cars at home and share private hire cars like Uber pool. This really will work when the fares become affordable and attractive. For that to happen, London private hire market needs to open to Uber and other Uber like companies to enter the market and compete to serve Londoners. But that is not possible because of the barriers of entry of black cabs, their powerful political lobby and their witch hunt against Uber.

The solution is easy. Deregulate black cabs to the level of private hire drivers and let all of them have the same privileges of black cabs before like the use of bus lanes. This creates a large volume fast private hire transport with a competitive affordable fare. The speed and affordable fares will encourage people to leave their cars at home and use shared cars like Uber pool. This will reduce traffic on London roads and should eradicate traffic congestion.

You never thought that through did you , no one is going to leave their cars at home , congestion charge was introduced to do that ,has it worked ? No , so your plan is to take things back and reduce regulations.

Works well in mountains of Middle East where people also take their chickens on board and don't mind a little grope here and there.
Brilliant idea.

Yep. Do the knowledge, buy or rent a 45 grand cab, and we can all use the bus lanes. Simple.
This is why Uber are in trouble, taking the easy way, circumventing rules. From 70,000 a few years ago up to 120,000 PH now is largely to blame.

......and how many black cabs?
Never, ever been more than 25,000 it's around 24,000 now. Get real.

There are no barriers to entry to the Black Cab trade, you've just got to graft. Something which you will do anything to avoid. And, in order to reduce traffic your plan is to put more cars on the road, and let them all use the bus lane?? Erm...

If u wanna work for £0.25 per mile, good luck.

Otherwise go back and read what you wrote!!!!

By congestion I mean traffic jam, not congestion charge.
Well, term congestion describes a traffic jam.

......and how many black cabs?

If I was TfL I'd revoke all PH licenses issued first time in last 6 yrs.

Stop going to that new uber hub for wisdom. They brainwash you with horrible stuff there. First, you came on this forum with free car in form of tax relief for PH drivers and now this.

What's the problem with public transport? Do you know how many priuses can stay off the road with one bus? They will have lots of vacancies in bus companies so instead of driving ladies for swimming lessons into the river Thames, get in touch with Arriva.

That is quite natural. It is the question of demand and supply. There is a big demand for PH drivers because of their affordable rates. If tfl encourages Uber and Uber pool concepts to encourage new Uber type entries and let PH drivers have the same privileges like black cabs the fares will become more affordable, which encourages people to leave their cars behind in favour of PH rides. With uber pool, many times in one go, I have picked up three riders at different pick up points to three different drop off points. This is similar to a situation, where three car owners, instead of travelling in their cars, they used uber pool. So instead of three cars going on the road, only one car went on the road. This is roughly to say that Uber pool concept can reduce London traffic by two third. When Uber pool concept becomes a culture of riding in London, that is what happens, London traffic decreases at least by half, if not by two third.

I would be more worried sharing my family photo on a BC forum

Not worried at all. My family protected by Peshmerga, Kurdistan SAS. "Who Dares To Win".

Your bread and butter customers are under 30s, who rent their accommodation , do not own a car and used to get a bus to their destination.
So no, you are the extra vehicle on the road who is taking work away from your fellow drivers by doing pool jobs and therefore Uber are not taking three cars off the road by providing a pool service.
