    Don’t need a study to realize that traffic congestion would increase when your business model requires that you saturate your market with billions of ants. :rolleyes:

    It's true. Here in Boston you can't sit at a single red light without seeing 10 Uber stickers and a dozen Lyft amps on cars all around you. It is a disease. Every car within 30 miles of Boston has a rideshare sticker on it.

    It could reduce the number of cars and parking spots but I never believed it would reduce the number of miles driven and thus congestion. It can't, it's mathematically impossible because of the additional miles required to get to pax, much less about cruising or repositioning.

    When Dara was made aware of this article, he immediately pushed a button on his desk and the independently contracted dobermans were released to Mr. Hobbes' residence. He then pushed another button and a @@@@@@faced PR sycophant appeared and was handed a script to refute this ("more cars decrease both wait times and traffic congestion", "lower rates mean more money", blah blah). Just pull his/her string to hear the greatest hits!
     
  6. Yeah Uber’s claim that they reduce congestion is JUST like lower rates means more money LOL

    ride-hailing could be enticing the wealthy out of buses and trains altogether, creating a two-tier system and eroding public support and funding for more efficient forms of transport in the long term.

    I've noticed this in my market. The only people that take public transport now can't afford ubers.

    You can't not place limits on growth and reduce congestion at the same time.
    Orwellian.

    It would be different if they were actually charging the rider something near what they are giving us but here they are giving us $3 when they charge the rider $7.50. Thus I don't even feel that I am helping the minimum wage worker get to work. I'm in poverty. My rider is left in poverty because they are paying $7.50 to go 2 miles. The only ones getting rich are the Uber CEO and the silicon valley workers getting paid $200,000+ while I get paid peanuts for doing nearly all the work and providing the means of production.

    It actually puts more cars on the road than is necessary waiting for low paying rides to ruin their cars.

    In Vegas, Y'all should see LV Blvd on a Friday night. It is so bad with ants, I go home until about 2am. Ridiculous traffic to and from hotels.
